Last Saturday Evening
Saint: "We need to go right now or we'll lose our reservation."
Me: comfy on the couch, using his laptop "Hang on, I'll be right there."
Saint: "Seriously, what are you doing that's so important?"
Me: "I'm checking in with the Internets, just one more minute."
Saint: "What Internets?"
Me: "You know, my bloggy friends. For pete's sake, hold on a second!"
Saint: "Well, I'm going to wait in the car. And from now on I'm calling them your bleeps."
Last Night At Dinner
prompted by this post I'd read earlier in the day
Me: "So, in the movie Juno, did you think the step-mother should have offered to raise Juno's baby?"
Precious Youngest: puzzled "No, why?"
Me: "Oh, I've just heard a few discussions where some teen aged girls thought the step-mother raising the baby along side Liberty Belle could have been a solution."
Precious Youngest: dumbfounded and momentarily speechless.... "I thought getting pregnant before I got married was NOT an option?"
I'm in the shower having already braved sub-zero temperatures to go to the gym. The Saint comes into the bathroom and leaves door WIDE OPEN.
Me: shrieking "Close the damn door, you're letting all the cold air in!"
Saint: "Sometimes I do things just so you'll have to talk to me before 8 AM."
