Miscellaneous recent utterances from the boys:
Parker: Mom, the new episode of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" comes out in TWO WEEKS.
Me (mistaking this for enthusiasm - and, truth be told, sort of half-listening): Oh, okay. Great.
Parker: Mom. Did you HEAR me? I said TWO WEEKS. FOURTEEN DAYS. That's just CRAZY TALK. I cannot be expected to wait that long.
Dad (driving past a major area of highway excavation, adjacent to a shopping center): Wow, this area is starting to look like the surface of the moon.
Connor (from the backseat, without looking up from his book): If the moon had a Kohl's.
Parker (upon arriving at Dinosaur World in Glen Rose, Texas, and seeing the three-dimensional dinosaur skeleton embedded into the side of the visitors' center): MOM! TAKE A PICTURE OF ME AND CONNOR NEXT TO THE DEAD TRICERATOPS!
Parker (apropos of absolutely nothing): Mom, when I was three years old, I blew up Malaysia.
