I am surrounded by the funniest people. I love a good sarcastic comment, or wrongly used word, or sometimes even a made-up word. That’s What She Said is a monthly round-up of all the things I’ve heard that have made me giggle.
At Justin’ family Christmas celebration, one of my nieces was talking about having a bubble butt. Kyndall asked what that meant and was informed it was when your booty pokes out like a bubble. Kyndall laughed and said, “Well my Daddy has a bubble belly!”
Libby got new makeup (and a lot of it!) for Christmas. One day on our break, she looked up at me and said, “I’m going to go put on my new makeup and when I come out, I’m going to look like a WOMAN!”
We are considering different options for new housing–moving, building, etc. One thing we do know is that there is a good chance we will be staying with my parents for a while during the transition. We have been talking to the girls about this some. On the way to church the other day, Libby burst out with “GraGra and Pops are going to have to pay for all our technology when we move in with them.”
A kindergarten teacher brought her class to the library and told me one of her students was at the nurse’s office taking his medicine. A few minutes later, the student came back and said he couldn’t find the nurse. I asked him what medicine he had to take (so I would know if I needed to go right then or wait until I got his class settled.) He responded, “It’s a pill I have to swallow. And if I don’t take it, I’m going to be bad!”
In case you are wondering, we went right then to find the nurse!
During our family Scrabble game, Justin attempted to use the word “vide”. He argued with me that it was a real word. I asked for a definition. He responded: “Vide is when you take vitamins. You know, you wake up in the morning and you vide.” Good try, babe.
From two second grade students looking for books– “That happened in 1999–nobody was even alive then!”
The girls have started noticing these funny comments too. Just the other day, Libby said something funny and Kyndall looked at me and said, “That’s what she said.” She was, of course, referring to this blog post and not to the other meaning of that phrase. It’s fun stuff, living with these people. A barrel of laughs, I tell ya. =)
PS: Don’t forget to vide–it’s important, you know.
