My zany college roommate Kimmer is here!
And anywhere that Kimmer is – there is laughter – lots of laughter!
We were browsing through the racks at the local thrift store when Kimmer quickly picked up on the fact that my kids thought our taste in clothes was a little dated – so she started pulling out ridiculous pieces to show them.
She was gushing and embarrassing them royally when – out of the craziness – Dagmar finds a nice pair of jeans of Pedro.
I look at them and say “awesome”.
Kimmer looks at them and says, “Precious!”
Dagmar almost chokes. “Awesome and precious?! Oh really! These are beastly sick pants!”
Kimmer and I look at each other blankly, “Beastly sick?”
Dagmar just shakes her head and moves on.
Okay – so maybe it’s more than our taste in clothes that’s a little dated. 😉
At home later on that afternoon – I asked Pedro to try on the clothes that his sister found for him.
As he come out wearing his new pants, we looked at each other and tried very hard to remember the words Laura used to describe them.
Now – I should insert here that the night before we had stayed up much later than any two 40-something mothers of nine kids should – so we were pretty much brain dead.
As we were frantically trying to remember the correct terminology – Kimmer blurts out, “I know – the word starts with an F – I know it – they’re fruity!”
The room erupts with laughter.
There’s never a dull moment with Kimmer around! 🙂
One thought on “Oh Yeah – Like Awesome Dude!”
So you’re telling me that beastly sick is the new totally awesome. Huh? Maybe that’s why my fourth and fifth graders appear to not understand me often. I’m not speaking their language.
