Outta the mouth...

Of Spencer. I realize it's been a while since I shared some of Spencer's funny commentary. This past weekend we visited my sister, Kathleen, and her boyfriend Jason... where Spencer had us all in fits of laughter with some great sayings. It's what prompts this much overdue post. These date back to April, so I've picked my favorites of the batch. I hope you giggle as much as I do... *     *     *     *     *

"Mama, don't touch my boogs... I'm savin' 'em."

*     *     *     *     *

"Oooo, that made my belly dance!" [When on the "spinner" toy at a friend's house.]

*     *     *     *     *

Mama: "I need to read this note from school." Spencer: "It says 'no school today?'"

[It didn't.]

*     *     *     *     *

"There are Buffalo in the Basement!!" [We're not sure how this came about... although rumor has it, my sister is behind it... but Spencer is convinced that there are Buffalo living in the basement. Or any dark spot for that matter. When asked why he's scared of them, he responds "Cause they are going to lick me!"]

*     *     *     *     *

"Cows in the Closet" [Along with the Buffalo, we apparently also have Cows in our closet. Don't you worry... Spencer and I are currently working on a book deal to get these stories out to the toddler set.]

*     *     *     *     *

"The Noisy Ducks woke me up. I think they're having a party next door." [Doug's office is next to Spencer's room. He was working late one night and his office chair tends to squeak. So, while not technically a "party"... he wasn't far off. Doug has since been banned from his office after bedtime.]

*     *     *     *     *

A cute story: While driving to school, Spencer started yelling something I couldn't quite grasp, but I thought was "bucket truck." After several failed attempts at trying to figure out what he was saying, I asked him to use it in a sentence. (I know, I know... but it was early and I hadn't had enough coffee!) Imagine my surprise when he said "Quack, Quack!" He wasn't saying "bucket truck" he was saying "Duckie Truck!"

*     *     *     *     *

This one is from Doug after finding out that we may have a coyote den on our property, and a den (bed? lair?) of snakes as well. [Along with the never-ending parade of ants]

"This place is like living in a house of horrors!" Yes, yes it is...

*     *     *     *     *

"Just the nestys" {aka necessities} [When asked what he was packing in my suitcase for a solo trip to Seattle. In case you were wondering, this included his top 7 books, his blanket, every stuffed animal he owns, duplos, and chuggers. Yup, just the nestys!]

*     *     *     *     *

"Ride the rails!" [If you watch Chugg!ngton, this requires no explanation... but is often used when bicycling, or leaving in my car.]

*     *     *     *     *

"One time, at band camp..." [Oh yes, yes he does. He saves it for stories about school... and how "one time..."]

*     *     *     *     *

And lastly... the tidbits from this weekend:

Both Kathleen and Jay work for the NY Dept. of Transportation. On Thursday, Kathleen took Spencer and I in to visit Jay and the rest of their colleagues. (more soon on this) When we were entering, Kathleen was explaining to Spencer that he had to get a pass since it was a government building, and therefor protected. Upon hearing that, he looked at her and said, "Why?! What you got to lose?!"

To get a laugh out of Spencer, Kath made a potty joke at someone else's expense. Spencer didn't fall for it. Instead, he just looked at her and said, "That's private." Hmmm... you think he's been lectured about potty talk in public recently?!

"That's Jason. He's Kathleen's daughter."

I saved the best for last. I think I may find it funny since we don't actually use this terminology here.

"Want to see my boobs?? [lifts his shirt] Oh no!!! I don't have boobs. Huh."

 

Until next time...
