She’s had some winners lately. Just this morning, Pandora was playing my latest favorite station, Vampire Weekend, and Kings of Leon came on. The song, “Sex on Fire” to be exact. And thank the good lord the lead singer’s voice is slurred with bourbon, because she said, “Mom. Why’s the desk on fire? Should we call the fireman?”
Here’s a short list of things she’s said lately.
Claire went and got two apples out of the fridge. She dropped one on the floor and said, “Sorry! I dropped your apple on the floor,” to which I responded with, “Um, don’t you mean YOUR apple?” and she said, “Sorry, I chose this one before it fell. But I’m sorry, because yours looks yucky.”
Claire: How old are you?
Me: I’m 27.
Claire: Oh man, you’re going to die soon.
Claire: “Hey Mama, can you break out the guns? This is stuck.”
Claire: That scared the hell out of me. Wait, I’m not allowed to say that, am I? Being a kid is so frustrating.
