Overheard at the dinner table

While I was out slicing pineapple, and all other family members were elsewhere, one child to another: "Brother, brother!"


"Please don't be crazy about Pokemon."

"But I am. There's nothing you can do about it."

"But girls don't like Pokemon."

"Some girls do."

"[Other sister] doesn't."

"Yes she does. She likes Pikachu, and Squirtle, Bulbasaur and Miu."

Maybe it's the fact that I graded like a whirlwind today -- 32 papers and counting -- that made that so funny. But maybe I can earn a quiet evening finishing a sock toe. A gal can dream, at least.

Sounds a bit Seuss-y to me, especially squirtle. Hee hee. Funny Things!

A quiet evening?!? What are those like again? :)

Too cute!

32 papers? Yuck! You make me feel a little guilty about the pile of marking I have to do before school goes back. But hey, I need a break!

Kids are so funny!

I think the world should be grateful I'm not a teacher...by the time I got to the 32nd paper I'd be like yeah, yeah, yeah, check.
