Why you want to be part of my family.

At dinner tonight:

Chick, to the table:
I totally love Fred Thompson. If he runs for president, I might break my self-imposed ban on voting and actually vote for him.

(Note: I don't really have a self-imposed ban on voting. It's a joke. I merely didn't vote in the last Presidential election. I know, I know. It was a really, really bad time for me. I had just moved here and just started a job at a temp agency and well, it was just a really bad time. It was more important to me to just function and not worry about who to vote for. But anyway.)

Jason, to the children: Mommy would leave me for Fred Thompson.

Boy child: Who is Fred Thompson?

Chick: I would so NOT leave you for Fred Thompson!

Boy Child: WHO is Fred Thompson?!?

Chick: Son! Blasphemy! What do you mean, WHO IS FRED THOMPSON? He's on Law and Freaking Order! He was a Tennessee State Senator!

Girl Child: Were we even alive then mom?

Boy Child: Oh. Is he that guy that sings like, "Ahhhhhhh!"

Jason: No, that's Barry Gibb. Mommy would leave me for him too.

Girl Child: Ohhhh.

Chick: I would SO NOT LEAVE YOU FOR BARRY FREAKING GIBB.

Boy Child: So...wait? The guy who sings "You should be dancing" is running for President?

Chick: I'm not talking to any of you anymore.

I actually prefer Andy to Barry...LOL

Jocelyn said...

I'm with ee...so would you leave Jason for Andy Gibb, had he not died so young and tragically? I'm almost over it, btw.

I've been vying for a spot in your family for YEARS now lady! It's damn near time you let me in instead of just taunting me with tales like this! If only I were a fly on the wall!

To funny. conversations at the dinner table can be fun with kids. That and in the car is where we get some of the funniest comments out of the kids.
Also I frequently get to the point of not wanting to talk to any of them anymore for the same reason

lol this reminds me of the game where you say something then it gets wispered to everyone in the circle and by the time it reaches the last person it has completely changed topic lol.

Let's run away together and start stalking Fred. It would be fun.

You have soooooo brightened my day, laughing non stop - and a great start to the weekend - just luv your blog!!!


Out of children come innocence - that we can only try to emulate.....

Crush or not to crush that is the question......

Keep smiling - as it will keep everyone guessing.

Greetings from Scotland.

LOL, curse those 9 year olds for not know who Fred Thompson is!

dennis said...

So if not Barry, which Gibb would you leave him for?

wife.imp likes Thompson too. Of course I would be more worried if her interest ran towards the Thompson Twins...

Catwoman said...

Love Boy Child's one sentence summary of Barry Gibb!

Absolutely hysterical all around!

Sounds like a conversation at our dinner table! :)

I was thinking of you btw, when your song came on the radio...You know, the one about "that Chick." That song makes me smile now.

Ginger said...

This is hilarious! I'd leave just about any man for Barry Gibb...old crushes die hard! :)

Funny...kids now will probably know him more for the SNL skit ("The Barry Gibb Show") than for his great music.
