One day last week, I was in the kitchen cooking dinner, The Geek was on the couch and the kids were outside playing. Suddenly, Bug comes bursting inside talking in his over excited, mile a minute voice. Due to the speed, I was only able to catch some of what he said. I gathered that there was something broken outside and that it needed someone strong to fix it. That’s when I realised what his main request was (and what he was saying as he burst in, before he explained the part about something being broken). It went a little like this:
Bug: Mum! Call P’s mum!” mumble mumble mumble “something’s broken” mumble “someone strong needs to fix it” mumble “P is REALLY strong” *
Me: *looking confused* “Um, what?”
The Geek: “I’m here! Could I fix it?”
Bug: “No! It needs someone REALLY STRONG and P is really strong!”
Me: *looks at The Geek*
The Geek: *looks at me*
Bug: *runs outside again*
Subject never heard of again. We still don’t even know what was “broken.” Kids. They say the weirdest shit.
* This is a really rough interpretation as I can’t remember nor could I really hear all of the exact quote.
