- "I'm feeling kind of hip today!"
Oh my good gosh, I do NOT even know where to begin with this. Since I teach Irish dance to young children on a near-daily basis, I hear funny things all the time. Just today, Elle, a lanky 10-year old diva who is both fabulous and strange, asked someone if she could "blow on their ear." Elle, of course, meant this completely innocently. Which makes it all the more adorable.
Other musings from Elle include:
"I'm feeling kind of hip today!"
"Can I feel your calf muscle?"
And then, after feeling it:
"Oooh, nice. Now will you flex it for me?"
"Please show me a leap. And then break it down precisely."
(A leap, for your information, consists of a SINGLE jump in the air. Not much to break down.)
I could go ON and on about Elle. Another favorite child of mine is Aidan, a true star who is far more mature than her mere 6 years of age. Aidan says lots of hilarious things, but my favorite by far is:
"STOP TALKING! I NEED MY QUIET TIME!"
I should mention that at this time, Aidan was only 4 and a half. What kindergartener is so stressed that she needs "quiet time"?
Ah, to be a child.
- run like hell.
as a devoted cross country runner, there's just no other option but to do my duty and run.
- Oh, to be young again.

"You'll shoot your eye out, kid."
Jean Shepherd is a magician with words, but I think this one is the quintessential quote of "A Christmas Story."
"Only I didn't say "Fudge." I said THE word, the big one, the queen-mother of dirty words, the "F-dash-dash-dash" word!"
"Over the years I got to be quite a connoisseur of soap. My personal preference was for Lux, but I found Palmolive had a nice, piquant after-dinner flavor - heady, but with just a touch of mellow smoothness. Life Buoy, on the other hand... YECCHH! "
And those are just from "A Christmas Story"
