Fly on the Wall July 2014: The Soylent Green Edition

Fly on the WallWelcome to this month’s installment of Fly on the Wall brought to you by Karen of Baking in a Tornado and all things funny.  “What’s this?”  You might ask.  It’s snippets of everyday life compiled into one post.  Sometimes funny, sometimes touching, and always interesting.  These posts are all published simultaneously in a group format-so don’t run away when you’re done here.  Keep going all the way to the bottom, and check out some of my fellow flies and their doo doo. 

Waiting patiently for the fireworks on the 4th!

Is it wrong to run in the room and yell “Kill! KILL ALL THE THINGS!” and then run out when your husband is playing Skyrim? Asking for a friend.

************************************************

Me: What are you guys going to do this afternoon?
The Professor: I want to go play pretend some more with my new character I created. He’s a ninja turtle and his name is Adam.
The Princess: Me too, my new character is Victoria Secret.

You can’t make this stuff up, people. And I should probably start buying my underwear and bras at Target…

*************************************

The Princess, upon seeing the commercial for those stupid Teddy Tanks: I WANT THAT!!!!
Me: You want everything.
The Princess: I changed my mind about everything else. I just want that.

WTF is a teddy tank?

WTF is a teddy tank? This.  Hell no.

Today I was told by a little boy I have superpowers.  Not sure what they are yet, but I’ll take it.

**********************************************

Evil Genius:  Do we have any chili?
Me: Yes… but I don’t know if you’re going to like it. I got it to try, it’s from Aldis.
Evil Genius: It’s probably not made with real meat, probably made of people.

It’s chili, dear, not Soylent Green…

*********************************************

Me to The Princess: Don’t forget the zoo is coming to the library tomorrow.
The Princess: Oooo! Will they bring animals?
Me: Yes, but I can’t remember off the top of my head what they’re bringing.
The Princess: Ohhhh! Maybe they will bring a giraffe!
Me: Now how would they get a giraffe up here (our local zoo is almost an hour away)?
The Princess: Maybe if he was taking a nap?

***************************************************

I’ve decided that summer vacation is just one really long argument with my kids.  The topic may change, but the arguing just goes on and on…

The Professor: What actor has been in most of the movies?
Me: Which movies?
The Professor: Most of the movies.
Me: Like a certain series or something?
The Professor: No, I mean most of the movies.
Me: You mean like most of all of the movies ever made?
The Professor: Yeah.
Me: Oh, I can’t even begin to answer that question.
The Professor: Well whoever it is, that’s my favorite actor.
(Later he recanted and said it was Robert Downey Jr and the guy that did the voice of Emmet in the LEGO movie.)

The Princess and her dream car.  A purple convertible.

Both kids got to get their picture taken with their dream car at the car show on the fourth of July. Naturally they wanted to see their pictures right away. Me being the former teacher I tried to make this a teachable moment.

Me: “You know when your dad and I were kids, we didn’t get to see the pictures immediately. We had to send them off to be developed, IN THE MAIL. And had to wait for them to come back in the mail.”

Evil Genius: “We had to wait WEEKS!”

Both kids: *GASP*!

The Professor and his dream car.  It looks like the Batmobile!

Funny how as soon as the mom returns to the house that the children are suddenly starving.

****************************************************

The Princess, coming down the stairs with her porcelain tea set.  “Would you like some coffee?”
Me: “Sure.”
The Princess:  “Would you like creamer or sugar or both in your coffee?”
Me: “Both.”
The Princess:  “Would  you like some dessert to go with your coffee?”Me:  “Why not?”
The Princess, watching me drink my pretend coffee and eat my pretend dessert.  “By the way, I put butter in the coffee.”
Must be a Paula Deen recipe.

Selfies at the races.  Not sure who the guy is.

I put this one in here just for Karen… Note to spammers to help you improve the efficiency of your spamming:  Putting the word SCAM in your description kind of defeats the purpose.

Evil Genius: I just had Mexican stuff on hot dog buns. It’s kind of like laundry day for food. (The day before grocery day…)

  1. Victoria Secret, I am with you on the Teddy Tank, how cool!
    I can remember when we had to WAIT for pictures to be developed and sent… aweful!
    Interesting question on the actor starring in the most movies. I was thinking Tom Hanks?

  2. Your kids would both look fabulous in their dream cars. Just say no to that Teddy Tank things and stick to your guns. I can assure you that as a boy, there is no greater compliment to his mom than to tell her she has superpowers. Even if you don’t know what they are yet. That rocks!

  3. My husband plays Call of Duty fortunately with headphones, so I don’t have to yell “Kill” like you did! I can relate though!

    Ewwhh butter in coffee? Hilarious Paula Deen comment! What the heck are those Teddy Tanks?! My daughter would probably want that too!

  4. you’ll take whatever powers you can get, too cute. People in the chili???? sounds like the companies and their GMOs, LOL.
    You’re kids crack me up babe.

  5. The Professor’s car looks more like Kit in the new Knight Rider. Just saying. I’ve seen the original Batmobile. 🙂

    As for Skyrim, anything goes. And from experience, I can say you definitely want to kill all the things!

  6. The Professor’s dream car looks more like the new Kit from Knight Rider. I’ve seen the original Batmobile up close.

    As for Skyrim, anything goes, and from experience, it’s better to kill all the things! LOL!

  7. Bwahaha. You guys are hilarious! I love the Soylent Green reference and the Mexican stuff on hot dog buns. Around here we have a habit of throwing anything together when we’re broke and hungry. Happens too damn often but it has led to some tasty meals!

  8. Love this! I’m now petrified of those Teddy Tanks. I’ve never heard of them and don’t want anything to do with them now.

    Matt and I were just talking the other day about how kids don’t know what film was, or how you had to wait a week to see if you even got any good pictures.

    And was the chili from Aldi good?

Whatcha Thinkin?
