“I woke up this morning thinking I had two noses.” – Sid
“I’m going to resume my life tomorrow when I’m less stressed.” – Prairie
Rachel, upon observing a hornet-like insect hovering outside the window “That thing looks like it wants to drill into your soul.”
“I’m very used to women liking me. That’s just how it goes.” – Sidney (He honestly said this without the least bit of arrogance. He simply recognizes that women of all ages appreciate being treated with respect.)
A dialogue between Sid and me, soooo typical . . .
Me – “I love you.”
Sid – “Knowing you as I do, loving me is the best thing for you.”
Me – laugh because really, what can I say to that?
Sid – “You laugh? It sounds silly, I know, but do you doubt me?”
A family dialogue that was about the misinformed reports of teenagers growing horns because of cell phone use . . . and that wandered off track . . .
Rachel – “In the animal kingdom, males tend to have more horny features.”
A short pause, where we all try to contain the guffaws …
Sid – “You have no idea how true that is.”
Rachel, turning as red as her hair – “Let me rephrase that. I was trying to say that in the animal kingdom, males tend to have horns, but the females don’t. Like goats.”
