Things the 40 YO says.

I'm reading this post over at Jess Wundrun's blog, and getting a good chuckle out of it, too, when I thought of an amusing thing my 40-ish-year old brother said to one of his kids. They were out and about somewhere, running late, and he was trying to get them moving, probably trying to get them to a soccer game/hockey game/violin lesson/cello lesson/piano lesson, or some such. The kids have told him "just a sec" one time too many. He shouts, in front of the gods and everybody "No more secs!" Try saying it out loud. In a public place. Yeah.

In a similar vein, there have been times when I am unsuccessfully attempting to walk my kindergarten class down the hall in a quiet single file line, and I'll say, "I hear voices!" Then I wonder how weird that sounds to a bystander and if they're thinking, "There are drugs for that sort of thing."

He sounds like me.

Suzy: But are they legal drugs? And is it wise to take drugs that cause you to hear voices?

Jess: Mission accomplished.

Dr. MvM: Are you saying you don't want kids to have secs?
