football got in trouble and was pouting a little bit. bfp asked him if he felt mad and football said 'no', so bfp asked him if he felt happy and football said 'no' again, so bfp asked him how he felt since he wasn't mad and he wasn't happy. football said 'i feel medium. you know, in the middle?' we both thought it was cute.

artist hit his funny bone this morning and in between the tears said 'it sprinkles, it sprinkles so bad'. poor guy! i didn't have the heart to tell him the word is actually 'tingles'.

did you know the [!] is actually called the 'excited mark' instead of the 'exclamation point'? i didn't either until artist told me. :)

the problem with jump ropes...

football: mom, i need a new jump rope.

me: why?

football: this one likes to land on my neck when i jump too high.

me: *serious nod* okay. a new jump rope it is.
(after football leaves the room, *snicker* i wonder how many jump ropes are going to have the same problem?)
