Conversations with Man-Child

Once again, this post is inspired by Mama Kat and her weekly prompts.  Hop on over and join in the fun.  This week I’ve chosen number 5; because in this household there are many entertaining conversations.

Driving in the car usually brings about some wacky conversations.

M-C:  I wish I could fly.  Wouldn’t that be cool?

Me:  Um-humm.

M-C:  The only thing is if you were flying through the clouds and came out and then there was a plane in your path.

Me:  Yes, that could be a problem.

M-C:  So, if you could fly you’d have stay low.  But then that might freak people out.  So I wish I could fly and be invisible.

M-C:  Being invisible would be great; wouldn’t it?

Me:  Yes, it would.

M-C:  You could do whatever you want. 

Me:  Hmmm.  It’d be kinda hard to get a job if you were invisible.

M-C:  You wouldn’t need a job.  You could go into a store and just take stuff if you wanted.

Me:  No you couldn’t.  Because then it would look like the stuff was floating.

M-C: No because whatever you touched would be invisible too. (told you this kid has an answer for everything).

Me:  It’d be cool to be invisible and drive a car.

M-C:  You wouldn’t need a car because you could fly.

Me:  No, imagine some guy is driving down the road and sees this car next to him with no one in it.  Can you imagine that phone call to the police – there’s a car barreling down the road all by itself!  Sir, have you been drinking?  No, really!

M-C:  That would be funny.

And no, Man-Child isn’t six; he’s about to be 15 and these are the types of conversations we have.

LOL – just remembered another one – it’s short, I promise.

Sitting on the back porch – me reading, him on the computer.

M-C:  Did you hear that?

Me:  What?

M-C:  A squirrel just fell out of a tree.

Me:  What???

M-C:  Yup, I heard his little high-pitched scream as was falling through the trees.

Me:  ::sigh::


  1. Too funny. I have conversations with my 4 yo in the car that feel the same way. I especially love the non-stop monologues about "the way things work". Life from that perspective is quite amusing. :)

  2. OMG I just laughed my ass off about the squirrel falling out of the tree.

    eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee!!!! Thump!


  3. There truly is nothing like a teenagers view on life. They think that they are so smart and have it all figured out when in reality they're usually wrong. They're so funny!!

  4. Glad to have found another mom of a teenage boy:)

  5. There is an award for you over at mine. :0)
