Simon Says

14 June 2012

 "Well, it sort of looks like an elephant but you are wrong."


After I complimented him on the good hair day he was having Simon said, "tell me something I don't know."

In reply to my request that he pick up some teething gel for Sebastian on his way home from work Simon said, "why? are we out of Jack Daniels?"

After I told him that Hallie told me she enjoyed this movie Simon said, "I don't think that is a very wholesome movie so I'm sure you and she will get along just great."

When he showed the slightest bit of trepidation around some horses in New Mexico and I poked the slightest bit of fun at him Simon said, "give me a break, you know I'm a city slicker."

While Julia was being extra annoying and wanted to be held in Mass last week Simon whispered, "pick up your cross."

In yet another attempt to pinpoint the kids' temperaments Simon said, "Julia is all urine* and vinegar like her mother and Sebastian is all sugar and spice like his father."

After observing a weirdly lax Sebastian for a few minutes Simon said, "I'm afraid we'll never know if he comes home high when he gets older."



*family friendly censoring, as always.

  2. These may be my favorite sayings o' Simon yet. And not just because he highlighted my innate wholesomelessness. ;)

  3. Please please please please tell me that he whispered "Pick up your cross" in a slightly sinister, creepy tone. Please?
    Also, it is a documented fact that the dude with the crazy eyebrows in that unwholesome movie trailer is ALSO Captain Kirk in the Star Trek reboot. Soooooo it may be the perfect toe in the sci-fi waters for you.

  4. You are so good at remembering! I had a long mental list of funny things E said recently and could only remember a handful when I went to type 'em out! :) Our hubs would get a long great...I knew this after comment #1 about the hair day. Too, too funny.

  6. I want to be Simon's friend, just as much as I want to be your friend, now. He gives my little Joan a run for her money,

  7. "Pick up your cross"...oh my gosh, hilarious! I hope all this fame and attention isn't getting to Simon's head :)

  8. Pick up your cross...committing to memory. I wish I had your memory. Mike is such a funny dude, but you would never know it because I never listen to, I mean remember, anything he says.

  10. All Wichitans have an innate dry humor. Something in the water in the 80's I think...
    I always enjoy your blog Grace, funny stuff!

  11. Thanks so much for the 500 millionth laugh! You're the first blog I click on in the a.m and then again rather desperately throughout the day! And I'm not even ashamed to admit that. :)

  13. I loved that movie. I prefer movies that aren't wholesome...they're much more entertaining.

  14. That last one made me laugh so hard last week, but I hate commenting on my phone, so I didn't. Then I thought about it again this morning, which I know is a little weird, but I think about blogdom a lot. I don't have much of a life.
