Pronouns


CONNOR: Did "blank" do the dishes after dinner? Um... he. (begins to write) Oh, no wait, she.
ME: Why did you change it from he to she Connor?
CONNOR: (in his "obvious" voice) Mom, because that's the ladies job!

I did the throwing my hands in the air and stomping around dramatically aghast - and then he drops another one:
"Well that's what Dad says....."

Ooohhh! That's a double-whammy. Wish I was a fly on the wall when Craig got home.

You really need to educate those boys now or they will not be acceptable husbands. (His mother-in-law will see to it that he does the dishes before she gives permission to marry;)

Even if the mother-in-law makes him do the dishes once before he gets to marry his dream girl... that would probably be the last time he did it.
Then he'll just pretend he doesn't know how to do the dishes and then act all amazed that you can actually put ALL of the dishes in the dishwasher where he could only fit two of them. I guess ignorance can be bliss...
What?! You have no idea what I'm talking about?! I guess it's getting late.

ahem. I can't even comment anything further except to say that I completely agree with Nan and Hanner. I was going to write the same thing but just not so tactfully. Obviously I have issues with this stuff. :)
