We are NOT well people.

Conversations between the boy and me tonight:

At the school's art show, looking at 'self-portraits' of students in a display titled "When I'm 100 Years Old":

Boy: If I was doing that, know what I'd draw?

Me: What?

Boy: A gravestone!


Later, in the car, the boy said something witty -- which I can't recall right now, but it has something to do with languages. I responded with:

Me: Touché!

Boy: Is that French?

Me: yes

Boy: What's it mean? I should know what it means, since I'm part French.

Me: Just because you've got the blood in you, doesn't mean you instinctively know the language!

Boy: Au contraire!

(That one frightened me a bit. He's too clever.)

That. is. AWESOME.

A chip of the ol' block, I say. ;]

Meghan said...

A chip "off" the ol' block, too.

Oh my. That second comment made me laugh really hard.

I'm still trying to figure out how you put that thing (What's it called? Hee) above the e. Touche//'' <

Feel free to tell me.
