041008 - I am not a jellyfish


I have drawn.  I haven't posted.  I will.  I've been MULCHING.  And I'm still not done...

This conversation is from a run to the Home Depot.  When we got there, I stopped the truck, pulled out a sheet of paper and a pen and immediately wrote it down so I wouldn't forget it.

D:  (after saying something inappropriate to his brother).  I'm sorry.  I can't help myself!

Me:  Yes you can help yourself.  You are the only one who can help yourself.  You are the only one in charge of your mouth.

J:  And your body.  And your testicles.

D:  We don't HAVE testicles.

J:  Yes, we do.

Me:  Yes, you do.

D:  Where?

J:  Right here (I hear rustling noises in the back seat)

D:  Oh.  I thought you meant stinging testicles.

Me:  What?

D:  Stinging testicles.

Me: ...................................................................Oh.  Like jellyfish?

D:  Yes.

Me:  Those are called TENTACLES.

D:  Oh.
