11 yrold : "Can i check the Arsenal website on your laptop'
Me(doing some small talk) : 'Fine....why? Is there an important arsenal match?
He nods and then a minute later, he adds : 'BTW, its 'ARE'senal not 'ARSE'nal!"
Thud, (*that was my jaw hitting the floor! anothe word joins my "think before you talk' vocab))
I enter the room to see a dedicated 6 yrold busy with his handwriting homework. Diligently drawing the T's, l's and b's with his trusted ruler.
Me (because i just can't keep my mouth shut): why do you need a ruler?!!!!
Rolling his eyes : "Beeeecause, my teacher wants NEAT handwriting!"
I give up!
In other news, I've been given the new nokia 5800, recently. And my son's drooling over it. It has a touch screen and i quite dislike seeing thumbprints all over my screen. (*cue for rolling eyes! that's what happens at home everytime i say that).
I'm still treating it like its a grenade, but other than that, it's pretty good.
So today while showing me some feature, 11 yrold enviously muttered "You are soo lucky! i wonder what you did to get it" (in other words, why i deserved it?)
sigh! Perhaps I should say "Sit down boy, this could take the whole day"!!!!
PS...his is an innocent question, but of course you, my imaginative readers, can interpret it in any way you want...:D
