WHAT DID YOU JUST SAY?! **revised just a bit

First of all you need to know that our family has fun with words that have a 'soft consonant' or end in a 'soft consonant'. Like buffet, filet mignon, quesadilla. Got it. So we always say smiling...want to eat at the buffeT or can we have fileT miGNoN and our most commonly used one and it is even hard ordering it correctly at a restaurant, is quesadiLLa.

Last night we had mexican. Afterwards we headed to Target. Blake had ordered a quesadilla at dinner and must have still had quesadiLLa on his mind as well as a one-liner that he heard somewhere. Out of nowhere, and thinking he was being funny, he said slightly louder than a whisper....."make your own DAMN quesadiLLa!"

Dave and I, both recognizing the bad word, immediately flipped around while laughing at his one-liner and quickly corrected him to DARN...."you mean DARN...right?" It was then that he too realized that he said a bad word. Dave and I were laughing hysterically. Blake was bright red!

It reminds me of the time when Kaia was 4 years old. I was in the office with the door shut. She was watching a movie and it was a little loud. I opened the door and politely asked her to turn the TV down. Next thing I now she is marching into my office, swings the door open and say, "kiss my azz" in complete proper tone and meaning. And she then shut the door on me. I just as quickly opened the door and said, "That's it....no more Bring it On movie for you missy." For two reasons....she didn't turn it down and when I asked her where she had heard that from she proudly reported, "from the girl on Bring in On." We had a little talk. And we realized quickly that she was picking up on WAY too many things that we thought might be going over her head!

**I know Blake didn't hear that one-liner from me. Nope, not me. I would never tell my children to make their own food. And I don't have a magnet on the side of the fridge that says "make your own damn dinner." That couldn't be me. I really did COOK five times last week. We ate five home cooked meals last week. Almost a record. I'll post some pics with an easy recipe tomorrow! They were yummy.

Happy Tuesday!

  1. That line is from Napoleon Dynamite isn't it? I know they pronounce it quesadiLLA too and since watching that we do to :D
    I think the line is, "make yourself a dang quesadilla"

    I sometimes wonder what would happen if we just watched religious movies and listened to hymns all day ;) I wish I could quote scripture the way I can quote movie/song lyrics.

  2. I was thinking the same thing as the commenter above, it's from Napoleon Dynamite. I can tell you that for a fact, because I've seen that movie approximately 30 times! Napoleon's grandma says, "Quit your whining Napoleon and make yourself a dang quesadilla!" So you see, not your fault!

  3. LOL That's too funny. My sister once called our mom's husband (we don't use the term stepdad, we have a dad) a "bastard" jokingly during a putt putt game. We laughed hysterically. She had no idea.


I heart comments! Just one rule that I'm sure your momma taught you...if you don't have anything nice to say...please don't say anything at all!
