Right Off!

I was just in the kitchen getting dinner started (No really, I was cooking. Ahead of time and everything. Shut up. It could happen.) and the kids were screwing around in the kitchen trying to get in my way playing nicely as I was chopping vegetables.

Ian (who is mainly concerned with safety near hot stoves) was pretending to surf on his Diego coloring book.

“Wipe Down!”

“You mean wipe out.” I said.

“Wipe Down!”

“Wipe out? Like when you surf?”

He rolled his eyes at me.

My three year old boy rolled his eyes at me and in his most condescending voice said “Wipe down. Like when you fall down into the ocean”.

To which I said “Look Lane, you are really bringing me over.”

better off dead 2 Right Off!

If it weren’t for this blog all of my best material would be wasted on people who don’t appreciate how hilarious I think I am.

pixel Right Off!

  5. And if it weren’t for this blog, I’d just be laying around having a great big pity party for myself. Instead of giggling and taking my mind off my bodily discomfort.

    Better Off Dead is the absolute best movie to quote from,as John puts out the garbage I usually yet out the window, “It’s a real shame when people starting throwing away a perfectly good white boy”. Whatever, it makes me laugh.

    We quote films all the time at Chez Renner.

    It is tradition prior to any road trip, the kids and I chorus, “It’s 106 miles to Chicago,we got a full tank of gas, half a pack of cigarettes, it’s dark, and we’re wearing sunglasses. Hit it.”

    I’ve been going to this high school for seven and a half years. I’m no dummy.

    Also amusing is “One Crazy Summer,” the other John Cusack/Savage Steve Holland venture.

  22. And now, I feel old, since I knew exactly what that quote was from!
    Great blog!

    has he started saying “whatever” to you yet? that’s always been my favorite.

  25. You can call me, 'Sir' says:

    That is pretty awesome.

  26. Lisse says:

    Gad, I was just talking about John Cusack to a co-worker and saying how it’s weird to see him in movies where he plays an actual grown-up (he’s a dad in his latest one). Then I have to remember that he’s really my age.
