This post is about nothing… meaning I am sick of myself and tired of the heaviness that I seem to feel constantly of late. The Harvey Weinstein verdict, the stories of the athletics at Ohio State, yadda yadda sent me into a downward spiral and blah blah blah.
So this is about the joys of boys! I have posted some of these on Facebook but I am reposting so they are on my blog for memories for our family years later. 🙂
Often times the boys say things that leave me speechless. I am so shocked at the way their minds work. They are really one of my biggest blessings.
“I was walking with a girl and she walked through a puddle so I felt I had to or I would look like a wimp. She had boots and since I didn’t I had wet feet all day.”
Pick up line: “Would you like to go on a date with me? You’ll enjoy a fine Indian made by my mom.”
“I feel more productive when I shave.”
“Was I a mistake? Who has six kids?”
“Scaliness (dry skin) is cool.”
“Does this shirt look too dirty?”
“That tasted like butt-cheek on a stick!”
This is an experience Max had at the grocery store his works at. He works in the health and wellness products and food.
A middle-aged lady approached him, asking if he could show her where the yeast products were. Max is 18-19 years old. He told her that she would find yeast in the baking section. This lady had a great laugh at his innocent response when she explained it was yeast cream, at this point when Max clued in. She said she probably should have not asked a young man. My poor child! 🙂
