More fun with words

Master J is nothing if not verbose. I'll be honest, I have no idea where he gets his gift of gab (ahem), but it makes for some entertaining moments.

We have three cats in this house. The oldest one is referred to by us as "the Idiot" and if you knew him, you wouldn't wonder why. But in reality, his name is Rex. So, after dinner, Master J started down the hall to brush his teeth and lay out his clothes for tomorrow. But then he stopped, came back and asked me "Do you know what you get when the Antagonizer runs in to the Hooligan?" I told him I had no idea. His response? "A Rex! Get it? Wrecks? Rex? Hahahahaha!"

Here's another good example...the other day, he was using his camera to make movies of interesting things around the house and in his life. After filming for over an hour outside, he came in and sat on the couch near me and announced "I just filmed the dog's butt." And then he tried to suppress a smile. I asked him why he would film the dog's butt and his response was "Because I was making a movie and it was (dramatic pause here) THE END!!!" And then he broke down into hysterics. And my inner 12 year old came out to play and I laughed with him. I know, great parenting right? Ah, well, if laughing at a good butt joke is my worst parenting mistake for the day, I'm probably having a pretty good day.
