and now a conversation of, erm, possible biblical passover related proportions? maybe?

josh: mommy, it’s so boiling in this car

me: i’m sorry, sweets. take your jacket off.

josh: gosh. it feels like Egypt in here.

me: Egypt?

josh: yes, Egypt. don’t you know. it’s really, really, really hot there?

me: um, okay, sure.

josh: that’s why it’s called Egypt.

me: huh?

josh: well, Gyp, in the Egyptian language, stands for beach. and we all know that beach is sweating hot. so that’s why Egypt is called Egypt.

me: interesting. i’m glad i pay the big bucks to send you to school.

josh: there’s a lot of sand there. don’t you know anything, mommy?


and now, a video of apple-bottomed jean and furred boot proportions:

hahahahahahahahah! i can’t figure out who is funnier today ๐Ÿ˜‰

  1. Please tell your daughter that I was over here in Lansing Michigan watching her dance and clapping and cheering, because she is AWESOME. You’ve got quite the performer on her hands.

  4. Good grief! Your kid can DANCE!
    My oldest was very fond of some Biblical story tapes for a long time and was prone to suddenly bursting out with “Mom? Did you know that Abraham used to be called “Abram”? Isn’t that WEIRD?” Um, yes.
