I think they were on a roll last week with funny sayings.
First, Owen was walking through the house singing a country song that should go, "I'm already taken, you spoke up too late."
His version was, "I'm already taken, you woke up too late." Maybe the theme for Rip Van Winkle.
Remember Bette Midler's song, "Give Me the Gift of Love"? Years ago Ellen altered the "Look me in the eye...." to "Poke me in the eye, say I'm the one you're dreaming of, that'd be the best surprise." Surprise indeed.
We were sitting down to supper on Friday when I heard an older boy comment, "The Pepsi looks, like, so peaceful when it's not fizzing." He'd be too embarrassed to be named publicly but we have records of him saying things like, "Mama, those dust pans look beautiful...... Um, Mama, it makes me embarrassed when I say 'beautiful'." And he once asked, "If Hawaii sunk would they take a star off the flag?"
Then on Saturday morning Owen weighed himself. He came out of the bathroom and asked, "Do you think if I stayed 81 pounds all my life I'd be able to walk on water?"
It must be the relaxing summer vacation that is giving them extra time for philosophical thought.
