Wee Boy: so you know that girl I like at school?
Wee Boy: I don’t think she really likes me back
Me: oh really? Why do you say that?
Wee Boy: I dunno. Prolly because I don’t have a cool enough haircut. You think I could go to the barber soon?
Me: yeah I suppose.
Wee Boy: cool. If that doesn’t work I’ll just seek out another.
Wee Boy: Dave with that mustache, you totally look like a guy with a mustache
Marley: Matthew don’t argue with me put your coat on!
Wee Boy: I’m not arguing
Marley: yes you are. Stop it!
Wee Boy: No I’m not!
Marley: Yes you are you’re doing it now!
Wee Boy: mom how can I be arguing? I don’t even know what arguing means!
(looking at the Nirvana Nevermind cover)
Wee Boy: so is this like a band that sings songs for babies?
Me: Hey do you know the words to this song?|
Wee Boy: no
Wee Boy: No I can’t tell what he’s saying?
Me: He says “Pour some sugar on me”
Wee Boy: Really? What’s the matter with him?
Me: one time when my brother was over in Afghanistan he was out in country and went a whole month without taking a shower.
Wee Boy: Wow he’s lucky
(Showed the wee boy the Michael Jackson Thriller and Billy Jean video)
Wee Boy: Dave, wow that was awesome! Thriller is the best song ever but those zombies kind of freak me out. I have one question though- is Michael Jackson a boy or a girl?
Me: so I hear you may be interest in Tae Kwan Do?
Wee Boy: eh, maybe. I might like to try it.
Me: cool! We can see what classes are available at the gym. The about karate is that you have to be responsible with what they teach you
Wee Boy: what do you mean?
Me: well you can’t use Tae Kwan Do as an excuse to go pick fights with kids. We’d have to take you out of the program if that happens
Wee Boy: oh don’t worry Dave, I already know how to fight kids, I don’t need Tae Kwan Do for that, I just like the belts and the uniform.
Wee Boy: I can’t believe Kelci pees in that coat
Me: what? Why do you say that?
Wee Boy: well my mom says that’s her pee coat
Me: no that PEA COAT dude, just the name for the style
Wee Boy: well that’s creepy
Wee Boy: You know who my favorite president is?
Marley McAnally: who?
Wee Boy: George Washington. Because he had wooden teeth. So he didn’t have to waste time brushing them. They were probably like dentures. It’d be pretty awesome to be president and not have to brush your teeth
