Jack: (fresh out of a bath, and wearing a fuzzy robe) Mom, I can remember the machine in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs!
me: You can? Okay, what is it?
Jack: It’s the Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator!
me: What the…? How did you remember that?
Jack: You really just have to remember the FLDSMDFR. (he says this
phonetically of course)
me: The Flidsimdiffer?
Jack: Try and say the whole thing!
me: Flint Lockwood Diabolical…
Jack: Noooo, DiaTONIC!
me: Okay, take 2. Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating…uh…
another D word…
Jack: Ha ha, it’s “dynamic”!
me: How many times have you watched this movie with Daddy??
Jack: Oh, only about 600 times. Not too many.
me: You have one good memory.
Jack: Don’t worry, your memory will get better as you get older Mom.
me: (oh boy) Thanks, but I think I’ve gone as far as I can in that department.
Jack: That’s silly! It’s not a department! Ha ha!
I was telling this story at work, and was told “This is a blog entry you know”. Yeah it is. And I love the “email-your-blog-entry” feature! Okay, back to work.
