Things that amuse me, Vol. 4

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

1. After being forced to half-watch the new Tinkerbell movie, I have to wonder how my daughter will handle it once "Tink" is picked up for all that soliciting her wardrobe tells me she must be doing out there in Fairy Hollow.

2. His careful sounding out of written words means that my 6-year-old son D- provides me small pleasures like listening to him loudly announce, "Ass... Ass... Ass..." across the house.

3. Aren't dreams supposed to be the realm of unattainable fantasy and unbridled imagination? That's what I always thought, until I realized that my recent uneventful dream of shopping online for pedometer batteries was definitely par for the course.

So it would seem that sleep is just an extra 5-6 hours (at best) for me to nag myself and continue leading a thoroughly tedious existence.

Where, pray tell, did young Master D- see the word Ass written, that he might sound it out?

wait! can we have him retry that when I am home this weekend? I need to tee-hee loudly in the corner!

LiteralDan said...

For the record, he wasn't actually reading the word "Ass", he was just reading a word that had "as" in it, and was stuck for a second picking out the sound of the next syllable.

That being said, I want to find some more funny words I can make him say.

1. How can they get another movie out of Tinkerbell, the least interesting character in "Peter Pan"? I want to see a movie about Michael's career as an insuracne adjustor.

2. Wait until he discovers "fart".

3. Are you having dreams about separating laundry into whites and colors? Is it normal to wake up worried about re-using fabric sheets?

Sleep sucks. Nothing going on. Totally boring. Waste of time.

yeah. What's with old people dreams anyway? I remember as a kid having really interesting and cool dreams (fights and adventure sort of stuff). Now it's all stupid and boring. Well, I suppose I can count myself lucky that I still have dreams, right? :-)
