So, our Hambone? Yeah, he's pretty hilarious...and I'm pretty sure he doesn't even know it!
He came home from school on Tuesday, his first day of school EVER, and I heard smatterings of "girlfriend" here and there from the kids. Finally, I asked him, "Hambone, do you have a girlfriend?"
His reply, "Yup!" *big cheesy grin*
Me: "Well, what's her name?"
Him: "Hmmmmm...I dunno!"
With that response, I figured we were safe. No need to start looking for reception halls just yet...until I spied him with a Ziploc bag.
Me: "Hambone, what's that?"
Him: "It's a piece of gum...FOR MY GIRLFRIEND!"
Uh oh...is a piece of gum the new 12 carat diamond?!
Later, at supper...
Me: "So, Hambone, tell Dad about your girlfriend."
He: "I have a girlfriend!"
Mr.: "Really? What's her name?"
He: "I dunno!!"
All of us, chuckling: "Well, what does she look like?!"
He: "Um...she has brown hair, blue eyes...AND A CUTE FACE!!"
And then we died a thousand deaths of laughter.
If nothing else, this year should be interesting, at the very least!
