The Week in Quotes (if nothing else)

It was a busy, hectic week. Far too busy to find the time to post anything of substance. For the record, it wasn't a bad week; it was just really full. I was, however, able to collect enough quotage for a post today (in the interest of full disclosure, many of this week's gems came from Karla's birthday party Saturday. I will have just enough time to post before I have to get up and make pancakes. Happy Sunday!

“I embrace my weirdness.” Arry.

“Yes, ma’” Jake, to me.

“How many people got the midget card?” Molly, recounting the statement of a student in her class.

“But I’m having a constructive conversation in Spanish!” Max, interrupting my French class.

"Ow! That hurts!" Juju, after saying, "Como se escribe quelquefois en franc├ęs?"

“I ran for 3 and a half minutes! No, they were not all at once.” Suzanne.

“So, I’m like a squirrel in six different ways.” NiNi, in what easily ranked as the most random comment of that particular day.

“Don’t try to make sense of it. It’s a, it’s a... It’s GOLD!” Dennis Gardman, from an NPR story on what draws people to buy gold. (you can listen to it [HERE]).

“I just had a vibe.” Lexi, who looked up just as I was in the act of throwing something at her because she wasn’t paying attention.

“Don’t talk about brownies while I’m cleaning the toilet.” Eric.
“Was I reading it from a text or something??” Ruth, who never swears, attempting to explain why I might have heard her do just that at one time.

“Well, at least it wasn’t as bad as ‘skateboard’.” Wheeler, on Ruth’s now legendary choice of card in Apples to Apples®.

“Your mother’s absurd...” My wife, attempting to use a “your mom” retort during the same Apples to Apples® game.

“Having all the people in the house brought the temperature up 5 degrees!” Karla, looking at the thermostat in the dining room. It registered 65°F.

Hi Wayfarer-

I'm Judd Corizan from the blog Sunday Stealing. Every week we rip a meme off someone's blog. Today we chose yours from October 4th. We give you full credit and link back to your blog. The great thing is that a lot of previous "victims" such as yourself have become regular players! We usually publish the blog between 1 and 3 PM EDT Saturday. We usually get between 50 to 60 people who play and comment on each others responses. And a lot of our players are previous victims of our theft like you! We hope you play along in the weeks to come! Thank you and have a great day...
