Sometimes I Don't Even Know How To Answer

Bella: "Are we having chicken for dinner?"

Me: "Yes, I have chicken cooking right now."

Bella: "In the kitchen?"

  1. "No, honey, it's grilling over the toilet."

    LOL.

    (Will refrain from making the obvious blonde joke.)

  4. I just blink.

    Blink. Blink blink.

    Usually by then, the lightbulb fizzles over their little heads and they say, "Um... yeah." and just leave the room.

  5. At that point, my sarcasm genes kick in and the kids would get something like "nope, it's cooking in the basement." I would totally use the toilet line, but Michelle already got it.
    There may be a reason my kids have a odd sense of humor. Hmmmm.

  6. I swear to god, that sounds exactly like something my fiance would say.

    I usually reply to his stupid questions with, "I'm not even going to answer that one" or "I'll let you figure that out...".

    MAN.

  7. With a daddy like Alex, who has come up with some ingenious inventions to rocket-propel food around the property, I see it as a completely sensible question.

  8. Maybe she wanted to see if YOU knew where it was cooking.

    Reverse psychology, you know?

    Ive gotten that question too and made the mistake of telling my middle one that i was making soup in the toilet. I late found a pound of carrots floating in there and a very proud child "making soup"

  14. when my cousin was young, she got in trouble for complaining "chicken again? I swear I'm going to shit feathers"

    It's still a favorite joke, but the S word got her in hot water. ha ha ha

  15. My best sarcastic comebacks always go right over my kids' heads. But at least she understands that kitchens are for cooking. Since she's going to be unequal to boys and all ;)
