Sister to Brother: “I hope you don’t mind. I was playing with your Nintendo DS and accidentally deleted all of your progress in Pokémon FireRed.”
** Both run to look at it **
Sister: “Haha! It was just a prank. I didn’t do it.”
Brother: “Good! Because if you had, I would hate you!”
Sister: “You mean you wouldn’t love me anymore?”
Brother: “Well, I would still love you, but I would also hate you. That can work right?”
Sister: “Okay, as long as you still love me.”
This originally occurred in January of 2013 – Thank you Timehop
(Conversation flow included because of its awesomeness.)
Me: I am sorry I get so frustrated with you kids sometimes.
Daughter: Mommy, if you didn’t know, Frustration is a move in Pokemon. It’s not very effective.
Me: I bet it isn’t.
This year, I get to attend Blizzcon. I’m already stoked about this in and of itself, but then, I see the announcement that the closing band is Metallica. Well, now I’m beyond excited… far far beyond.
So, I decided to introduce my kids to some Metallica last night.
Me: “What do you think?”
Son: “This is awesome!”
Daughter: “It’s OK, maybe a little too much rock. “
Me: “There’s no such thing as too much rock.”
*** Note: I went with ‘Master of Puppets’ as my intro.
Son – “Bacon has a lot of cholesterol.”
Daughter – “What is cholesterol? ”
Son – “It’s something that if you eat too much your heart stops working.”
Daughter– “How do you know? ”
Son – “Plants versus Zombies song.”
Son: How is that orange chicken?
Daughter: Well, it’s kind of sweet-ish and…
Son: (interrupting) It’s Swedish?
Daughter: No, it’s sweet-ish. You know, kind of sweet and then it tastes like chicken, and then it gets a little spicy in your mouth and feels really nice.
Son: Oh. OK. I’ll eat that.
Daughter’s friend: My grandpa once peed on a tree.
Mommy: Sometimes boys pee on trees… because they can.
Daughter: I’m glad my brother is domesticated.
