Things that amuse me, Vol. 3

Here, as the title might suggest, are a few of the things that have been amusing me lately:

1. They should print the tags of children's clothing in the front, so my kids might accidentally put some on properly one day.

2. This is a scrap I found from at least a year ago, about a Camry radio commercial I'm absolutely certain they're no longer running:

Totally Sincere "Customer" Voiceover (the culmination of a series of praises about the Camry's dependability and consistent reliability, including "It's good to know there are some things you can still count on"): "When I'm stressed out about something, I sneak out to the garage and look at the Camry, and I feel better."

Well, I have a Camry, myself, and let me tell you, much as I've always liked it [and still do!], this has never worked for me.

3. With the way he's been behaving lately, my 5-year-old son D- sitting up alone in his room playing his harmonica makes me picture him rotting in a cell singing, "No-booody knooooows, the trouble I've caused / No-booody knows but my-teacher-the-principal-the-bus-driver-my-parents-other-kids'-parents-my-grandparents-their-grandparents-and-just-about-everyone-ellllllllse".

4. I feel like I need to hang an announcement around my daughter's neck, to cover me in case of my untimely demise, that reads, "She dressed herself today."

Yes, because, at your funeral, we'll be saying, "Thank God M- isn't dressed like a little homeless waif anymore."

I figure as long as they are covered, who cares if it is on backwards...Maybe she will start a new trend or something. LOL

Mary said...

And you set a good example for her? You don't wear your shirts inside out and backwards, do you?

Don't worry — when you're kid's a teen, you'll still be hoping she'll wear a sign that says she dressed herself because n father in his right mind would let his daughter go out in public the way teen girls do!

Kat Wilder said...

Uh, make that "no" father ... sheesh!

My child insists on wearing mismatched socks. And possibly also boxer shorts over his jeans. To school.

Toyota has a new approach to marketing. Cut the prices. This started a price war among some car sellers. Lemonade from every lemon?
At least if one is in the market for a car.

No offense to YOU, Literal Dan, but I need a sign for my daughter that says "My daddy dressed me today"... I'm sure YOU would not dress your daughter in a turtleneck and fleece jumper with thick tights to go to an outdoor party in 80+ degree mid August... even if they ARE all shades of pink and therefore technically matching... WOULD you? No, I didn't think so... ;)
