So, Ajers is studying the constitution in fifth grade and he had to do some speech in class on a historical figure. He chose to be Benjamin Franklin. He got a wig and some funky glasses for his speech. When we were talking about it later in the day ... well, let me just set up the conversation for you:
ME: So, how'd your speech go on the constitution?
ME: What did all the girls dress as, Betsy Ross?
HIM: HOW DID YOU KNOW?!?!?!!?
OK, the kid was absolutely STUNNED that I knew a person from the constitution time. And actually, I was secretly happy with myself that I guessed right!
She made flags, didn't she? And didn't she have an affair with George Washington? Or was that Clinton?

Tukey got his MRI for his knee today. He did great, and we find out results on Friday. I'm hoping it's just something to do with growth plates and it's just because he's growning too fast.
I took him to McDonald's for breakfast and when I ordered for him, I said, "Can I have a vanilla milk?"
OK do ANY OF YOU call it vanilla milk or is it JUST ME?
I ALWAYS CALL IT VANILLA MILK.
It's OK to call it chocolate milk but we can't call it VANILLA milk? This is a racist thing to me. Like what if I said, "OK, I'll have a black milk."
White milk? Chocolate milk? Black milk? Vanilla milk?
See. SEE?!?!?!?! (I'm currently screaming at my computer as I type these words, trying to make my point.) I don't know why.
But really, come on. What if I were to ask for a black milk?
Please discuss in the comments.

And finally, number 3:
Here's a rap song I just made up in my head.
I'm a hamster on a wheel
and I just can't get off.
Go ahead and scream,
go ahead and loff!
Ya think it's funny,
you think it's a hoot!
Come on over here and
I give you da boot!
