2 or 3 words that Jack should never say

me: You know what? You should start a blog. I could help you set it up. It’s easy. And then you could type whatever you wanted about games or legos, or anything…

Jack: Oh yeah, I’ll start a blog and it will only have 3 words on it.

me: Be very careful before you say those 3 words out loud mister.

Jack: (cracks up laughing). Nevermind! Can I play my game between the writing and spelling homework?

me: No. Homework first.

Jack: Can I play after!!???

me: We’ll see…

Jack: We’ll SEE? That’s a NO!

me: We’ll see is distinctly neither a yes or no, and it’s depends entirely upon the circumstances that happen during or after homework.

Jack: Why does everything you say come out in long drawn out sentences?

me: Hey, I’m old. I have lots of words left to use up.

Jack: Yeah, well I only have TWO words for you that I have to say.

me: Sigh.

4 Favorite Things…Boys Only Please

Jack: Try and guess the 4 favorite things of boys!

me: Let me see… Number 1 would be girls

Jack: You’re right

me: Number 2…food!

Jack: Yes! You’re good!

me: I know boys. So number 3 would be sleep I guess.

Jack: That’s a good one too

me: And 4 would be cars. (I was feeling pretty confident)

Jack: Completely wrong! It’s beating your last high score on a video game.

me: Oh, didn’t think of that, hmmm…

Jack: Well?

me: Huh?

Jack: Can I play one?

me: Sure. Just not a shooting game.

Jack: They’re ALL shooting games!

me: I don’t like shooting at people…how’s that?

Jack: Okay… (he gets on the computer and I check on him a few minutes later)

me: Hey what’s this? I said no people. What are you shooting at?

Jack: The “unfortunate”.

me: I don’t think I like this.

Jack: But it’s the game and it’s all cartoonish people! You’re trying to ruin the number 4 favorite thing aren’t you. Sigh…
