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.

Sarcasm is my 2nd Language

"You see, that is the sad, sorry, terrible thing about sarcasm.  It's really funny." ~ Brandon Sanderson
"Are you always a smart ass?  Nope.  Sometimes I'm asleep." ~ Jim Butcher

A recent conversation between my mother and me, as best I can remember:

Mom:  Alex is convinced that the water tower at the end of the road is full of grape juice.

Me:  What?  No, he's not.  He knows it's a water tower.

Mom:  He says you told him it has grape juice in it.

Me:  No, I didn't.  Did I?  I wouldn't do that.

Mom:  He was adamant that his mother told him there was grape juice in the water tower.

Me:  Okay, well, he might have said "Mommy, what's in the water tower?" and I might have said "Grape juice, Alex, what do you think?  It's called a WATER tower."

As a side note, the water/grape juice tower conversation between Alex and I happened SO long ago, I'm shocked he even remembered it.

As another side note, it's a real possibility that I'm warping these children.
