Every so often being a parent affords me the opportunity to reference pop culture to my children (and my wife) to mostly oblivious results.
Two recent examples worth blogging about:
Driving to work last week:
Owen: Look at that wood on the truck! (Pointing excitedly out the window from his car seat)
Jenn: Wow, that is a lot of wood!
Me: That’s what she said.
This joke never gets old for me and is still way above either of the kids’ heads.
Please to watch this compilation from The Office that includes all the utterances of said phrase. Old meme but definitely funny.
Second, an exchange I had over the weekend with young master Owen on the topic of having his diaper changed:
Owen: I don’t want to take my clothes off! (He was afraid we were going to switch him into his jammies and put him to bed.)
Me: You don’t have to take your [pause] clothes off, to have a good time.
Sad but true. Video evidence that I’ve been unduly influenced by 80’s music videos.
So there you go. Using my own touch points and memories to confuse my kids and make my spouse roll her eyes since 2003.
Happy Thanksgiving Week! (I’m thankful for YouTube, btw).
