Overheard


Tomorrow is my turn to plan a Seminary game. I turn to my spouse for creative inspiration. "Hey Brad," I ask. "What was your favorite thing to play when you were a seminary student?"

Without hesitation, he says, "Spin the Bottle."

Not surprising. Not helpful either.

----------------------------------------

Sam at dinner table, "Ewwww. Do NOT get your eyeball juice on me again, Emmie!"

----------------------------------------
A little brother with a secret is a dangerous thing. Luke helped me pick out a surprise DVD to watch on our Thanksgiving roadtrip. Of course, he could not contain his excitement and started giving broad hints to his oldest brother.
"OK, OK! I'll just give you the first two letters.... U and P."
-----------------------------------------

In line, at the H1N1 vaccination station, I heard a kindergartner mention my twins to his mom. I couldn't see him pointing, but I knew he was talking about us.

"Look, Mom!" he said. "Those boys are twins and they ride my bus. That one is the nice one. And that one is the mean one."

For the record, so far, nobody has 'fessed up to being the Mean One.
But I have my suspicions.

I love the movie hints. Your kids make me laugh.

I think your kids come by their impishness pretty naturally! I can't wait to hear Brad when Emmie says she's been playing spin the bottle.

These are awfully cute. The U-P one is so funny.

The problem with being a twin is that you may not necessarily be "mean" it's just that you are always being compared to your other half.

I am always repenting for comparing my identical twin brothers.
