my adventures

There was a little girl who had a little curl right in the middle of her forehead.
When she was good, she was very good indeed, but when she was bad, she was horrid.

“I don't have to tell you it goes without saying there are some things better left unsaid. I think that speaks for itself. The less said about it the better.” ~George Carlin, Brain Droppings

A recent conversation with Alex - including the parts that only took place in my mind:

Alex: The cat at Robin’s is Kidder and the cat at Gram’s is Frank.

Me: (Silently) Actually Frank died not that long ago but I’d rather not go in that.
        (Aloud) That’s right.

Alex: Robin’s going to give me a cat.

Me: (Silently) She better not.
       (Aloud) Really?

Alex: Yes, I will call him Fire.

Me: (Silently) Where do you come up with this stuff?
       (Aloud) Fire?

Alex: Yes, he’s a really hot cat.
          Me: (Silently) BWAHAHAHAHAHA
                  (Aloud) Ohh.
Alex: He will be orange.

Me: (Silently) That actually makes sense.
        (Aloud) Is orange your favorite color?

Alex: Yes.

Me: I thought your favorite color was red.

Alex: No, orange.

Me: (Silently) Seriously? You told me it was red not even 10 minutes ago.
        (Aloud) Okay.

Several minutes later:
Jeff: (Reading this post aloud) Actually Frank died not that long ago...

Alex: Frank died?

Jeff: Yes, he's in kitty heaven.


  1. Oh to be a fly on the wall of your silent thoughts throughout the course of a day!

    1. My silent thoughts are even more sarcastic than my out-loud thoughts. Scary, huh?
