On Star Trek 86

Kirk and Spock talk to whales in 1980s San Francisco


There’s a Star Trek movie about whales?

And it takes place in San Francisco?

During the 1980’s?

You *really* expect me to believe THAT?

The {incredulous} 14 y.o.


On Visiting the Grandparents

BA Jet

The 14 y.o.: So would it be possible for M and me to fly alone to visit our grandparents in England this summer? It’s been more than 8 years since we last saw them.

The 6 y.o.: HEY! What about me? I haven’t even met them. Ever.

The 10 y.o.: You’re too young to fly alone.

The 14 y.o.: But think Lil C, if we fly to England, you’ll have mom and dad all to yourself for a whole month!

The 6 y.o.: When does your plane leave?

On Christmas Carols

Reindeer sleigh.
Comes our way.
Beard of white.
Special night.
Blah blah blah…whatever.
