S: babe! you know what I just realized???
S: I am going to be sending my children off to *prom!
*Prom doesn’t really exist in the UK. Their high school is very different than an American high school.
While watching the film who framed roger rabbit
S: This is my favorite movie of all time
Shane: They have a roger rabbit ride in toontown at the Disneyland out here.
S: why hasn’t anyone taken me there yet?
Me: We will! promise!
S: You know I have a roger rabbit teddy bear that I’ve had since i was little
Mom: wait what?
S: I have a roger rabbit teddy bear
Mom: but roger rabbit is a rabbit…not a bear
Me: it’s what he calls all stuffed animals. I just go with it.
S: every animal is a teddy bear
Mom: that makes sense….
While getting frozen yogurt for the first time
Me: so this is frozen yogurt! it’s like healthy ice cream.
S: looks just like soft serve
Me: yea but it’s like healthy. So we can feel like we are getting something sweet. I usually go for plain and add some granola and coconut and carob chips.
S: what are carob chips?
Me: like healthy chocolate chips
S: I am going to get the red velvet cake ice cream* with oreos, butterfinger, and those round things* on it
Me: I think that defeats the purpose of the healthy part of this experience…
While eating dinner
S: I think it’s origawno on this chicken
Shane: wait are you saying oregano?
S: ya, i am saying it the right way.
Me: so he thinks
S: how do you guys say origami?
S: How do you say via?
S: how do you say viable?
Me: but origami is spelled orIgami not orEgami…so your oregano point does not make sense
S: oh. well i got one point right.
S: I just want to know how long it will take to get somewhere. Why does everyone always say “it takes this long WITH traffic and this long without traffic” i just want to know the real time.
Me: there is no real time babe. this is LA.
While at the bank
Me: I totally forgot my pin there for a second. Had a total barn fart.
S: WHAT?? what did you just say?
Me: I had a brain fart??
S: (cracks up laughing) what does that even mean??
Me: it means i forgot something that i usually always know. How have you not heard of this saying before?
S: because it is a ridiculous and strange thing to say
While in a restaurant:
