Our house in the morning is a very weird place. MrZ and I both wake up feeling mildly goofy which lends itself to some entertaining moments. If, by “entertaining” you mean, “stupid and childish.” Here are several scenes from this morning that you would have enjoyed had you been a fly on the wall. These moments remind me how totally awesome my life is.
- MrZ’s re-enactment of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle performance (from the second movie) where they’re all “Go Turtles, Go Turtles, Go!” He even added the dance moves for good measure. His skills are nothing if not relevant to today’s trends. (Edited to Add: MrZ actually said “Ninjas” instead of “Turtles”. I got it wrong when I typed it because I was watching high caliber movies like “Ghostbusters” instead.)
- NikkiZ held up her hand in a “Stop!” gesture to which I responded, “Stop. Collaborate and listen.” At this point MrZ joined me in performing as much of “Ice, Ice, Baby” as we could recall. It was actually quite a bit. I’m sure there are spaces in our brains giving up remembering historical dates or medical knowledge so that those lyrics can be saved for moments just like those.
- There was quite a goofy exchange we made following the statement from MrZ, “We don’t really have half a bag of the fake ground beef. It’s more like a quarter-bag.” To which I giggle (of course) and continued to make drug-related ambiguous statements about that particular quarter-bag of fake meat.
