Conversations in my house

"Mom," Bug says, "I have a new boyfriend at school. I'm going to tell you some things about him and then QUIZ you to see if you were listening.*"

Me: Ok, honey. Go for it.

Bug: (using her fingers to count off)
  • His name is SB. (last name sounds like the name of a vaccuum cleaner -- so that is what Carl and I call him now-- S. Vaccuum Cleaner)
  • He has browndish-blondish hair
  • He has bro--- no WAIT -- HAZEL eyes
  • His favorite color is... blue
  • His favorite sport is... baseball
  • His favorite food is... chicken
  • He is - like - mid-tempo

Me: Wait. Mid-tempo? What does that mean?

Bug: You know... it takes a lot to get him mad. He is MID-TEMPO

Me: Do you mean Mild Tempered?

Bug:(rolling her eyes) Whateverrrrrr!! You know what I mean...

Me: (laughing to hard to say anything else)

* I passed after I stopped laughing.

I can see the eye roll and the attitude. Give her a head-kiss for me.

HOLY MOLEY. Conversations with a quiz at the end? I don't think I could take the pressure.

Biddie said...

I couldn't the pressure, either.
I don't think that I am mid tempo.
