Riding in Cars with Boys – Part Eight
Yesterday was crazy weather wise. On my way out to school to pick up the boys, there was sleet, thunder and lightning, sunshine, torrential rain and hail. This was in the course of fifteen minutes. But, I actually managed to get to school early which was good since it was pouring rain by the time I pulled into the parking lot and hailing like mad when the kids came out of the building.
Killian: Oh my god, you’re actually here early.
Not Kevin: Good timing since it seems the Apocalypse is upon us.
Me: I think I deserve a reward.
Justin: You’ll get a reward when you’re consistent.
Sigh. Sadly, I deserved that.
Killian: (in an abrupt change of topic) Hey lady, did you know fuck is the most versatile word ever?
Me: It is useful.
Justin: No really. We figured it out at lunch.
Killian: It can be a noun.
Justin: Or a verb.
Killian: And an adjective, like “you fucking asshat.” (Yeah…that apple didn’t fall far from the tree…)
Justin: Or an adverb.
Killian: Can it be a modifier?
Me and Justin: And adjective is a modifier.
Killian: Derp! I knew that.
Me: It can also be an exclamation…and probably a question too, if you put enough inflection in it.
Justin: I knew your mom would be able to add to our list!
Killian: Dude, my mom’s awesome. You know…sometimes.
I’m weirdly delighted that their lunchtime conversation ended up being about grammar. Also, my kid called me awesome. In public.
