Ooooo, I hate that kid!
Ok, the Boy isn't nerdy and doesn't have a horrible voice and taped glasses, or even yellow planet pajamas, although I've been threatening him with some for Hanukkah. But he's got that know-it-all, let me tell you all about what kind of train we're on attitude that drives me bonkers at times. It's not that he doesn't have friends or isn't able to relate to other kids. It's that he just doesn't always get when to keep his trap shut and stop sharing useless information. For example, at the very end of The Polar Express, when the elves are partying and they have the Steven Tyler look-alike elf in the elf-Areosmith band, the boy is all disgusted because they show elf Joe Perry playing a Stratocaster, and lord knows, Joe Perry doesn't really play a lowly stratocaster. It was WRONG. So we had to hear all about what Joe Perry really plays and why the Stratocaster is absolutely the biggest mistake in the history of film.
I'm telling you, this is one very annoying kid at times. You should sit down with him during Wheel of Fortune. His disgust over contestants that can't guess the puzzle in two seconds is legendary in our home. He has no patience for lesser mortals. He thinks that everyone should be able to win the million dollar prize on Millionaire. He thinks that Ken Jennings is NORMAL, for heaven's sake. He finds mistakes in every TV show and movie he's ever watched. He can wax forever on the CGI merits of a film, telling how they did every freaking special effect. It's daunting how trivial his mind is. And this is coming from the Queen of Triva, the Empress of Minutae. I promise you, he's 50 times worse than I ever was.
It's been such a long day. I can usually handle it if I get time off. But when I've got sick kids home for almost the whole week and haven't had one second to myself, I get very weary. Crabby and weary. Bitchy, crabby and weary. Yeah, that about sums it up. Stumble It! JBlog Me
