Some conversational highlights from life recently:
[While playing Taboo with some students during lunch.]
Student M: (humming) Hmmm hmmm hm hmm hmmm... (singing) had a very shiny nose...
Me: Frosty the Snowman!
Student M: YES!
Student A: Isn't Rudolph the one with the shiny nose?
Student M and me: Oh... yeah, huh?
Student A: You guys really are eerily alike...
[Also from Taboo.]
Student H, as her turn ends: Oh, good. I got Mick Jagger, and I wasn't sure what to say for him.
Student M: Isn't he the one who, like, improvises stuff?
Me: Improvises? What do you mean?
Student M: You know, like making a bomb out of dental floss.
Student A: That would be MacGuyver.
[From Thanksgiving with the Grandparents.]
Papa: (eating a leftover Monte Cristo sandwich) Wow, that's a great sandwich. I just wish I could remember where I got it.
Grandma: It's from Robert's Deli this afternoon.
Papa: Really good.
Grandma: From Robert's Deli.
Papa: What's that?
Grandma: We went for lunch. This afternoon. Down the road.
Papa: Oh yeah. Well it's a great sandwich.
(5 minutes later)
Papa: Great chicken sandwich. I just wish I could remember where I got it.
(Mom is sitting on a massage pad)
Papa: That's a nice vibrator you've got there.
Me, Seeser, and Jersey: Hahahahahahahahahaha... (this laughter extended for many minutes, including going into super-silent-stealth-laughter mode and ow-my-tummy-hurts-from-laughing mode)
I hope everyone is getting ready for December...
