Me: I need to put the trash cans out but I don’t want to go potatoes.
Jami: I hate it when I go potatoes!
Tracy: Sometimes I grow roots and just sit there quietly judging people in my potatoes glory.
Jami: I am couch-potato-ing as we speak!
John: I’m calling the ASPCA.
Me: You probably should. My new puppy was popular at uke club tonight. I spent half the time not playing because everyone else wanted a turn on her.
John: I’m glad I have context because that sounded terrible without it!
After practicing my ukelele for a while this evening, Mattie made this declaration:
Great. Now I have the tune you were playing stuck in my head.
Suck it up buttercup… I didn’t say it but I sure thought it! Kinda makes me feel good to know my playing is catchy on some level though, so thanks for the sideways complement, honey!
I made some truly awful squalling noises on the violin.
Me: Listen! Its a dying cat!
Mattie: I get it. You can make noise. Please stop.
He has no sense of adventure. I’m super excited for my first violin lesson tomorrow afternoon!
