Happy New Year!
I thought I would start 2017 (a year which, unfortunately, is a prime number—I don’t like prime numbers) with a look back at three of my favorite SAFS of 2016 (since three is also a prime number, which somehow creates balance)….
We had to go out to the mall today and decided to eat lunch while we were out there. We had decided on Shake Shack when we passed by Joe’s Crab Shack.
Me: “How about Joe’s Crab Shack? We have never eaten there. Anyone want to try it?”
Seba: “The food probably tastes like crap. Ha ha, get it?”
After a long pause, Nathan chimed in….
Nathan: “You know he said crab, right? With a “B”?”
Seba: “Oh. OK, never mind. It might be good.”
We were at the boys’ cousins’ house and Nathan and Sebastian were playing wiffle ball in the back yard.
After a few minutes, the two came in.
Me: “What happened?”
Nathan: “Sebastian hit the ball over the fence, so we can’t play anymore.”
After going outside and unsuccessfully looking for the ball in the neighbor’s yard I came back inside.
Me: “I could not find it, but that’s OK, we can go buy another.”
Nathan: “Yeah, and Sebastian can pay for it out of his allowance!”
Me: “Sebastian does not get an allowance.”
Sebastian jumped up, pointed at his brother, and screamed:
“Ha! Joke’s on you!”
Sebastian shows me about a third of his hamburger.
“Do you think I can shove this into my mouth?”
Me: “Probably, but I don’t want to see it.”
Seba: “Then turn your head.”
