Tonight’s dinner conversation:
Room Clearing Farts. Not just Room Clearing Farts, but Room Clearing DOG Farts.
Yes. Yes it is.
My son: “Mom, what kind of food would a dog have to eat to create a room clearing fart?”
Where is this coming from, I wonder? But I go with it.
My answer: Chinese Food or Soy Nuts.
Emma said: Beans.
Dad doesn’t say anything, just starts cracking up.
Suddenly, and randomly, I might add, the topic turns from Room Clearing Dog Farts to the Karate Kid and the whole “wax on-wax off” scheme of Mr. Miyagi. How did it all come to this? I don’t know.
Jacob says, “Miyagi only wanted some free labor”. I quite agree.
“Oh yes, he was teaching him Karate (Ka-rah-tee)”, Emma says.
**Suddenly, I was reminded of the time we were driving through a local shopping center where there was a Karate studio and Emma, impulsively, read the sign as “Care Ate”. This was fairly recently and it cracked us all up because she immediately realized her mistake.**
So I jokingly say to Emma, “Oh, you mean ‘Care Ate’ don’t you??” <wink>
To which she replies, with a tilt of her head, a raised eyebrow and a point of her fork, “Touché, Mom, touché.”
<insert shoulder shrug and shake of head here>
