Bird Poo and Crocodiles...You have GOT to be kidding me!
Ian says the funniest things! Today while sitting in the car, waiting to pick Nicole up from school, he got into his backpack and took out a plastic egg, filled with candy, that he had gotten from a friend at preschool. When he looked inside, he exclaimed, "Oh gross! Bird poo, like Nicole!"
Explanation: Nicole got some Cadbury Mini Eggs the other day and was trying to trick her brothers into thinking that they were real bird eggs. She accidentally dropped one and some of the shell came off revealing the chocolate underneath. To save herself, she said, "Oh look! Bird poo!" Then she ate the egg and grossed her trusting brothers out.
So Ian, for whatever reason, decided to put the 'bird poo' in his mouth and eat it. A few seconds later, from the back seat I head him moaning and groaning. "Oh, this bird poo is disgusting! I need to spit it out! I don't feel so good!"
The power of suggestion.
I told him to swallow it. :)
It got quiet after that as we sat watching for Nicole to come out of her school. The silence was broken by Ian saying, "You have GOT to be kidding me." (real slow and adult sounding). "What?", I asked him, thinking something amazing was happening somewhere. "A leaf is blowing over there.", he said.
Later, I was filling the tires on my car with air and Ian was being my helper. After we were finished and I was putting the compressor hose away, Ian squatted down to look at something. "Mom!", he exclaimed. "It's a crocodile!"
I looked over and there was no crocodile in my garage. Just a dead cricket.
