If You Were A Fly On Our Wall

-(Dylan was making dinner...LOUD)

Me: I can't stand dinner time! He turns into a raving lunatic? He's like a...like a...
Jim: Gremlin you fed after midnight?


-(Jim was explaining how his boss sent out an email, asking people to please not leave their dirty dishes in the sink.)

Jim: I hope X told her it wasn't me, because she already knows, err, I mean thinks I'm a slob.
Me: Busted!! (I am always telling him he is a slob, and he is always denying it)


- (Jim and I were sitting on the couch, after Dylan went to bed. Jim was working on his laptop, and I was watching Oprah's Big Give. A group of contestants opened their package to see what their task was this week, and there was a skateboard inside.)

Me: Wow! That is a SWEEEEET board! I want it!
Jim: (Looking at me with a mix of slight amusement/ slight astonishment) What did you just say?!
Me: (Realizing I sound like an idiot, but unwilling to let it show) I said that board is sweet. I want one.
Jim: You want one?!
Me: Yea, I wanna be a skate rat...and a drummer.
Jim: (After a pause) Are you having a mid-life crisis?
Me: (Laughing, then growing serious) Yes, yes, I think I am.
Jim: Just don't come home with a Corvette, okay?
Me: Okay. (I don't even like Corvette's, but that board was SWEEET)

Man that cracks me up, did you seriously say that?! Oh the visions I have right now of you in baggy shorts skating in the grocery store parking lots, knit stocking cap on, jumping curves or whatever it is they do....You go for it.

I don't know, I think you would look pretty hot cruising the Burgh in a Corvette.

Oh gosh! I thought he was going to tell you just not to come home with a Brad Pitt look-alike.

Conversations are so funny!

Totally, though, I'd love to be a skater too. And a drummer...for a punk rock band. Ahem.

Did I say that out loud?
Crap...

Pam, "makes me feel more normal" - hey, wait a minute.

Julia, I really did. What is happening to me, Doo-ya?

BBM, What, I don't look hot in my Elantra?

Jonny's mommy, Brad Pitt apparently wants a much bigger family than I would be willing to give him.

And thanks for giving me an idea for a post today! I'm out of pics for wordless wednesday.
