My Grandkids Get It Honestly


                           (Bug and Mater)

Mater, Bug and I were having a delicious and nutritious lunch at McDonalds today, and, as usual, we were having a serious discussion consisting of jokes, gossip and character assignations.

I told them a dumb joke and Mater, being a true grandson of mine, started laughing. Bug, on the other hand, didn’t understand the joke and said, “I don’t get it.”

That made Mater laugh even harder. He also had a comeback for her, but because of a mouth full of chicken nuggets, that hindered any chance of that happening. Finally he wolf-swallowed the whole mess and said to Bug, "You almost made me choke on my nugget."

So Bug, my sweet 12 year old, softly and demurely said, “That’s what she said.”

They learn so fast, don’t they? I’ll have to have a talk with their MeMaw about how she talks in front of them. It’s her that teaches them things like this. I’m sure it is.

I kind of now feel like eating at McDonalds, but I should instead just hang around funny people!

Too Funny. My soon to be 8 year old uses the "that's what she said" line all the time. It's so funny......Yeah I'm sure they get that talk from their grandmother.

Yeah, I know. I have to watch what I say around my grandkids. Doesn't sound good when they repeat it at home, and that they heard it from grandpa.
