I’m kinda sorta taking the week off from writing because much is going on and it’s a holiday week and I feel like a vacation. But I figured I’d let Noah do the writing instead. So here’s a collection of his recent musings…
We were playing restaurant.
Noah asked, “What would you like?”
I can only assume that Noah is going to grow up to be a Colloquialism Creator.
“Well. Good thing you’re only five. You have plenty of time left.”
“We sure are going to miss y’all!!”
Ali: “I’ll miss you too!”
Noah: “I sure am glad they have wi-fi because it would be TERRIBLE to go without that.”
Guess which kid is going to take care of us when we’re old. Not this one.
“It’s not nice to tell people what their butt smells like.”
“Well you still smell like flowers. Hey Ali! Mommy smells like flowers!”
Noah: “My life is awesome without shoes!”
“I couldn’t find any before we left.”
…His life was promptly less awesome when he stepped out onto 95 degree Alabama June asphalt.
Noah: “Seven dollars, including the $10 bill.”
“I read a lot.”
The excuse of literateness strikes again. (And also, he cannot read yet.)
(shakes his head and sighs…) “It was a long night.”
“Awesomer than a Cheetah in a bowl of soaking hot water.”
So there you go. I’m pretty sure that’s seriously awesome.
