Yesterday morning in the kitchen as we are doing the morning rush:

Punkinhead – Hey, LMNOB do you have Oprah today?

LMNOB and me – Huh?????

LMNOB – You mean that black lady on the TV?

Punkinhead, exasperated – No! I mee-ean that singing thing you do!

:cue lightbulb: Oprah = Opera in his little boy mind! Aha!

LMNOB, all self-righteous: It’s CHOIR, Punkinhead, not OPERA! And yes, I do have choir after school today.

Well, then!

My bedroom, the other night as Charlie Brown and I are settling in for the night.

Charlie Brown: Dang, woman! You are getting skinny on me.

Me (stupidly doing that female thing where I protest at a compliment): I’d hardly call myself skinny.

Charlie Brown: Better than a TURD like me.

Me: Charlie Brown! Why are you saying that, you don’t let me get away with putting myself down, so knock it off!

Charlie Brown: You misunderstand, my dear. TURD….Totally Un-Resistable Dude.

Me: Bwahahahaha…..You’re, muahaha, too much! Oh, my heck, my sides hurt. Besides, isn’t the proper term irresistable?

Charlie Brown: There you go, putting me down again.

Oh brother…….

Men!
