Colsen got uncharacteristically angry tonight... This was the conversation:
Colsen: Can we have eggnog right now?
Pete: No, not yet.
Colsen, completely irate: BUT WHY CAN'T WE HAVE ANY??? YOU GUYS ARE SO MEAN! YOU ALWAYS BUY EGGNOG BUT THEN YOU NEVER LET US HAVE ANY!!!!
Pete: Colsen, the eggnog has been in the house for 30 minutes.
The boy likes his 'nog.
Then I had this conversation with Strider, who has a major paper due tomorrow and was starting it TONIGHT...
Me: How's that paper coming?
Strider: Ok, I guess.
Me: It's probably hard to write a paper on "Frankenstein," since you've never actually read the book.
Strider: I'm just not going to talk about the book much. The assignment is to talk about how I FEEL about the book.
Me: Well, I'd still recommend using some portion of the book at some point.
Strider: I guess I could say something like, "I'm not sure what page it's on, but according to 'SparkNotes,' in chapter 3...."
Me: I wouldn't recommend writing that.
And then there was this...
Miles: What size is Strider's bed? And what's yours?
Me: Strider's is called a Full size, and ours is Queen.
Miles: So does that mean mine is a Knight-size? (He's been really into chess lately. :) )
