AFTER YOU READ THIS, PLEASE GO READ THE PREVIOUS POST ABOUT HOW IMPORTANT IT IS TO DONATE BLOOD AND HOW YOU CAN WIN A TRIP TO FLORIDA FOR DOING SO! AND LATER THIS WEEK, I'LL TELL YOU MORE ABOUT THE GRAND PRIZE TRIP AND OTHER PRIZES FOR THE DRIVE THIS YEAR! Now, we bring you the childish Manic antics:
Isn't it grand when children can learn from each other. Such a great thing. Take today for instance. But be warned. If you're not into bad-word talk with your kids, well, maybe you should just skip this post. Or definitely don't drink a beverage while reading.
So, we're all in the car driving who knows where and the boys spot a Dick's Sporting Goods.
Do you see where I'm going with this already? Good.
Boys start laughing. Like Beavis and Butthead laughing.
Diva doesn't get what's so funny when sons start saying, "Hey, look, Dick's. Heh heh. Tukey, I see a Dick's."
"Yeah, I see Dick's too. Do you see Dick's over there?"
"Yep, right there. There's a Dick's."
And I'm driving in sucky traffic and I go, "Stop it boys. Right now. Just drop it. Enough!"
And Tukey and Ajers are cracking up because it's a dumb boy joke and they can't control themselves.
And of course, Diva is like, "What's so funny? Why are you guys laughing? Why won't you tell me? ... DICK? DICK!!! Why are you saying dick? What's so funny about dick?
ME: Well, NOW you HAVE TO TELL HER!
The laughing stops. Ajers says:
It's a naughty word for a weiner.
(And of course, in my mind, in the back of my head, I am laughing my total ass off because this is one of the funniest conversations I've EVER had with my children in MY ENTIRE LIFE!) And then it gets funnier.
Diva giggles. It's a giggle like she has just unearthed the best secret in the entire world a nine-year-old girl could EVER discover. Then she says:
"Ajers and Tukey have a DICK!"
