Overheard at the Food Court

KatyBeth: “Ugh. Boys are such pigs.”

Me: “There will come a time when you won’t think so, sweetie.”

KB: “Oh no, there won’t! They eat like pigs, and behave like pigs. It’s disgusting.”

Me: “Sometimes you eat like a pig too, Miss I Don’t Close My Mouth When I Chew.”

KB: “Yeah, but when I do it, it’s just a cute and endearing personality quirk. When boys do it, it’s just gross.”

Me: “So noted.”

    Is it just me, or do kids these days have wittier comebacks than we did?

      I blame Television. Every sitcom is a cutting contest.

    Spawn the Younger once said “When I get old, I’m just going to adopt a baby, so I don’t have to go through the agony and pain.” Missus JB said “Oh, child birth isn’t THAT bad, or I wouldn’t have had two children.” Spawn replied “No, I meant the pain and agony of having to kiss a boy!”

    If she continues thinking that way for the next 20 years, I’ll be happy.

    Great comeback, and she ‘will’ change her perspective… :-)
