Okay - I'm detained by this show for the next hour and 10 minutes. Then it's off to bloggy land & email reply land. I just wanted to share this with you before I forget. I'm good at that, forgetting. I hear or experience something that is very blog worthy & then I forget to post about it. By the time I remember what it was I wanted to post, I forget the dialogue or would mess it up badly enough that it just sounds dumb.
The other night Andy admitted to me that he knew what a "butt crack" was. Here's how it went:
Dew: I know what a butt crack is.
Me: Really? What is it?
Dew: It's the top of a person's butt. (all the kids are around, so this is followed by some giggling)
Me: Like what you see when a plumber bends to fix your sink?
Dew: (just stays silent wondering what the hell I'm talking about, because who hires a plumber any more?)
Me: Okay, if you know what butt crack is, then what does it mean if someone says you're smoking crack?
Dew: (expressing extreme pride in his knowledge) It's when your butt is on fire.
Insane giggles come from all of us because this is so literally an example of how kids say the darndest things. The typical smoking crack jokes ensue followed by so much laughter. As wrong as it was, it really was a lot of fun. I'm thinking this boy must have overheard a telephone conversation where my BFF and I were talking about phrases we use, but shouldn't. "You're smoking crack" was one of those.
And that, my friends, is why I'll never be mom of the year.
