It makes sense in his world.

Boy Child has been infested with ticks lately.

Well, infested is a strong word. I've pulled off three. And all because we walk in the park a lot and don't stay on the trails. And all of them have been pulled off within moments of them attaching themselves to him. But to hear him tell it? He needs to be in the hospital.

Anyhoo, yesterday after our walk I was checking him for ticks and he said, with a deep sigh,

"I just don't understand why ticks like me so much. They all want to suck my blood."

Girl Child said, "Probably that first tick that bit you? Told all of his friends to come bite you because you taste good."

Boy Child rolled his eyes. "All ticks don't know each other, Girl Child. They aren't like Canadians."



Um. Okay.

Once again, boy child cracks me up.

On a completely unrelated note, I came to you for some advice. I have a anonymous commentor that keeps leaving me incredibly mean commments and I know you have dealt with this before, any advice on dealing with them?
Thanks

Um. It's true actually. We do all know each other. It's all part and parcel with our secret plot to take over the world.

We're snagging your side of Niagra falls first.

That boy child cracks me up something fierce. So much so, that I'll tell him the truth. Like tics, Canadians actually don't all know each other. Once we got to 30 million people, it just got too hard to keep the Christmas card list up to date, so we gave up.

seriously why won't you let me take them home? I swear i could use a dose of those two.

so i'm curious...do half canadians (like myself) know only half of canada? if that's the case canada's gotten MIIIIIIIIGHTY small recently as my canadian knower list is on the rather short list.

on second note...um...ticks? FUCKING EWWWWWWWWWW

I only know a handful of Canadians. And I am glad to say I know no ticks at all. That's a plus to live in Western Canada I'd say.

I'm thinking you should not tell him about Lyme Disease...

Where do they get this stuff?

Wow.

Chelle said...

He's right. Ticks aren't like Canadians. We're much cuter (and wittier) than ticks :D

Sarcasta-Mom said...

Like Canadians. Love it!
Ticks seriously freak me out...

Joy T. said...

LOL well we ARE a friendly bunch but it's hard to know 'everyone' in Canada LOL Oh man that's hilarious! And now I have to go visit all the Canadians I see commenting on this post. Wow. Who knew there were so many of us. Maybe I will say hi to them. Like I know them *hee*

I'm so glad I wasn't drinking anything at that point, because it would've come out of my nose, which would've hurt.

I am a failure as a Canadian as I can say that I only know one other person on my whole block let alone the rest of the population. Does that make me a tick?

Stephanie said...

Hilarious. As usual. :)

Jenski said...

I feel like a broken record, but your kids CRACK ME UP! Glad they give you these moments of hilarity. :)

Kat said...

Seriously though? My husband is Canadian. And for real any time we run into anyone from Canada, they know somebody who knows somebody they know. And its a big country. I don't get it.

Rachel said...
