...it occurred to me, he'd grown up just like me. My boy was just like meeeeee

Out of the mouths of babes... okay, he's 12. But this was STILL the funniest Goddamn thing I heard today.

We were driving home from his orthodontist appointment this afternoon. He told me that he didn't like the assistant who worked on him today.

Says he: "She kept missing my brackets and poking my gums."

Ever the nice mom, I tried empathizing with him then he KILLS me with this:

"And she smelled like old cheese and loneliness!"

I almost swerved into oncoming traffic.

I just don't know where he gets it.

Old cheese is for lonely people who are allergic to cats.

Michele - if you want, I could try emailing you a copy of that Sandy Duncan sound file. I dunno why it won't play on blogger for you. Drop me a note at bucky4eyes AT gmail DOT com and I'll send it to you if you want.
