When my youngest niece was just learning how to talk, she would often say the most random things. One day, my mother, who was babysitting her, put her in her high chair for lunch and gave her a cup of yogurt. She stared at the yogurt for a good five minutes, then tasted it, looked up, and solemnly announced (like a doctor delivering bad news to their patient), “It’s. Blueberry.” Mom and I couldn’t stop laughing for a good while afterward! IYAMLOL
While playing softball with my family, my brother was gun-shy around the softball. In jest, I aimed a hit in his general area, actually hitting him (not my intention). So, he decided to play catcher, moving behind me. Again, a foul ball grazed his ankle. Determined to not be anywhere near the ball, he took off running for the outfield, where, as you would guess it, the next hit landed square in his back as he was running away from it. IYAMLOL
When my nephew was six, we were driving down the highway listening to the radio. I mentioned the band name, Barenaked Ladies, and my nephew exclaimed, “What? Where?” and then started furiously looking for them. IYAMLOL
I caught my grandma singing Lady Gaga really loudly once while watering the tulips. Her iPod’s volume must have been set really high. The neighborhood children were pointing and laughing from behind her as she made hand gestures and swayed her hips. IYAMLOL.
My cat always liked to sit on my lap. When I was pregnant, as my stomach got bigger and my lap got smaller, my cat was still determined to sit there. So, she rearranged her seat so her butt was against my stomach with her tail drifting up over my belly. She sat that way each day on my lap until she was booted hard by my in-utero daughter under the tail. My cat flew off my lap, gave me the dirtiest look I have ever seen her do, and never sat on my lap again for the rest of my pregnancy. IYAMLOL
