As I’m sure you’ve all pretty much noticed my blogging has become almost non-existent. It’s not that I don’t want to blog. I’m just having a hard time finding the time right now. I’m also kinda in the process of soul searching and I’m finding that it’s taking up a lot of my mental energy right now and I just don’t have much leftover for the blog. So, here’s a few Shorty-isms to hold you over for a bit.
On a recent trip to Home Depot with Big to buy fertilizer, top soil, and grass seed:
Shorty – “Dad, what are you getting?”
Big – “Some fertilizer, grass seed, and dirt. We have to go pay for it once I get it all in the cart.”
Shorty – “Dad, why are you paying for dirt?” [As he laughs hysterically.]
Big – “Hmm, that’s a good question.”
Shorty – “Dad is going to pay for some dirt. Dad is buying DIRT.” [more hysterical laughing]
You know the kid’s got a good point. Why do we pay for something that is all around us?
As Big was driving by Kmart.
Shorty – “I don’t feel well.”
Big – “You don’t, buddy? What’s wrong?”
Shorty – “No, but I think I know what would make me feel better.”
Big – “What’s that?”
Shorty – “If we go to Kmart I will feel better.”
Big, the sucker, fell for it. Home they came with a new remote control Lightning McQueen and a Bolt book.
On Easter after an egg hunt at Gram and Pop-Pop’s that resulted in $25.00 cash. Plus another $10.00 from Great Grandmom.
Gram – “Wow, you’re rich!”
Shorty – “Umm, [imagine brow furrowed in thought]. No, I’m just wearing a green shirt.”
No, idea how the two are related but it was funny.
He’s got a million of these little gems lately. I wish I could remember them all. It’s been quite entertaining.
