Things Overhead and Observed

KiKi whilst in the back seat of the car on the way to the indoor swimming pool- "You guys drive me crazy!"

A man and a lady shopping at the commissary- 
Her- I nead one head of lettuce to shred for tacos and one bag of lettuce for salads."
Him obviously confused walked over to the heads of lettuce and picked up one "So one of these?"
Her- "Yes, do you understand what I am talking about?"  Walks off without an answer
Him turning around towards the head of lettuce and half under his breath "Nope"

Poor chunky kid at the swimming pool...in a speedo.  He couldn't get onto the inflatable obstacle course and none of the other children would help him up.

I was changing KiKi's diaper on Thursday night and she was lying down and I was leaning over her with my butt kinda up in the air.  Well LaLa decided to kick my butt.  Only she didn't kick me in the butt. "Hey, Mom, I'm kicking your butt!!"  "Ummm, that isn't exactly my butt!"  She kicked me in the va-jay-jay three times.

I could spend ages in the supermarket just people watching and listening in to those little conversations. Just brilliant.

(just don't ever come shopping when hubby and I are there together. Let's just say that couple you overheard were tame by comparison)

I love the dialogue from the store. I also wouldn't not have understood.

"Nope" would have been my answer too...

Lisa said...

You shared it! Awesome! Ahhhhh, people. Aren't they awesome?

Cammie said...

heehee....love it!
Happy Monday!!

Wait until I tell John there's guys like him in England!
I've been known to frustrate him in just that way.

WHo gives their overweight child a speedo to wear? WTF? Parent fail!

Season said...

Listening to other people's conversations is so much fun sometimes. Makes you wonder what people have overheard you saying.

I feel bad for the boy in the speedo. What were his parents thinking?

Michelle said...

I just laughed out loud. Nice! lol

Sammanthia said...

LOL! Did *your* uterus shift two inches to the left? Mine totally did. It still hurts.
I can't believe anyone would force their child to wear a Speedo. They need to be reported to Social Services. That's just cruel.

Sigh...my husband and I must have been momentarily transported to England, because that would definitely be us in the grocery store!

Nothing quite so awesome as getting kicked in your girl stuff.

and dude with the lettuce?? dude. it's lettuce. it's not that hard.

Heather said...

OMG I did that to my dad once, only he doesn't have a va-jay-jay. He was bending over to pick something up and I whacked him with the top of my foot. Ooops.

Captain Dumbass said...

I've had that conversation. Not about being kicked in the va-jay-jay though.

Miss Grace said...

Nothing like a swift kick in the crotch to keep you moving.

Eastern Reflections said...

Hahahaa!!!! Awesome :-p


Also, I noticed that it seems only American guys seem to wear the typical swim trunks that go to the knees almost. Everyone else in the world seems to favor the speedo...which has its upside if you see a really HAWT HAWT HAWT man in it, but nearly blinds you if the real old and fat ones have it on.

Kim Hightower said...

A Speedo? Really? Poor kid. That's just wrong!

Reinvent Dad said...

I feel like an idiot asking questions in the supermarket and now I know why...people are listening in. Not even competitive swimmers wear the traditional speedo anymore so why do most of the world outside the U.S.? I think it's just wrong.

Jen said...

I was just as confused as that man. women who gets them. ;)

Michele said...

My husband and I just had a conversation similar to that the husband and wife in the store. Ours involved the placement of storage containers in the kitchen. Can you say frustration?

Yaya said...

haha!

Vic said...

I picture that poor man talking to the head of lettuce...

I didn't think they even SOLD speedos anymore, let alone for kids.

People watching is an Olympic sport here, I kid you not, you should enter 2012. It is good fun, and can take you through a hole range of emotions. Though, being quite evil, I could see the humour in most/all situations.
