On Boys:

"Boys, they love to tickle you in the right place."

On Music:

"I like Ice Cube. Especially the part when he says swear words."

On Leisure:

"I don't want to go back to school. I need another vacation. I need like four vacations."

On Faith:

"I don't want to go to Bible Study. They always say the same thing. Why they always got to repeat themself?"


She's actually doing really well. When we first started working together, she could barely add or subtract two digit numbers, and forget multiplication unless it involved long, drawn out sums and counting hash marks. Now she is multiplying and adding two digit numbers like a champ. Subtraction is still a little meh but the thing that makes me really satisfied, apart from all the little improvements in focus and comprehension, is that she'd rather do LONG DIVISION than go to BIBLE STUDY.

I'm not opposed to bible study per se. But when a child is required to attend thrice weekly, and expresses a desire to finish her math homework instead of spending Thursday evening at church, this delights me. And it's not like she was sucking up. If she wanted to skip church to watch TV she would damn well say so, because C-pain says every single thing that pops into her head.

On Politics:

"Obama is so fine! If I was older I would totally get on that."

On Race Relations:

"Have you ever dated a Mexican guy? My grandma said I shouldn't date Mexicans but Diego gots muscles!"

Etc.

Did you know that Jehovah's Witnesses don't even vote? I was kind of surprised by that.

That's awesome.
"Obama is so fine! If I was older I would totally get on that."

I think I said this exact thing the other day. Except for instead of "if I was older" I said "if Michelle wouldn't kill me dead".
Do not make Michelle Obama take off her earrings.
