Thing 1

If you need me, I’ll be making out.

Sometimes LilZ walks to a friend’s house after school. One day, I found out that they don’t immediately start walking, they hang out at the school until their friends are gone first. I freaked out and exclaimed something like (and this is essentially verbatim), “I do not want you hanging out at the school if there are no adults. That’s like giving you prime make out time!” Of course, his response was, “What? Who would I make out with?” Hee.

A few days later I called him to let him know I’d be about 10 minutes late picking him up. He said, “Okay, we’ll be under the awning – making out – until you get here.”

I cracked up. He’s a smartass, but he’s funny.

This morning, LilZ was telling me about a skit he and this girl were doing to demonstrate the word of the week: Compassion. “We’ll be making out.” To which, I replied, “You do know that compassion is not the same thing as passion, right? Compassion is seeing someone less fortunate than you are…feeling sorry for them…and then helping them out.”

There was a long pause as I’m sure he thought No, shit, Mom. I’m not an idiot.

But instead? He deadpanned, “And then I could make out with them.”

Gotta love that kid.

  1. Ha! I need someone that witty in my life, just to make my day on such a frequent basis. So thanks for sharing yours ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. He really is a funny kid. I hope that you guys continue to stay close in the coming years. You have such a cool relationship.

  3. If only my niece, who is his age, were half that funny! Maybe it’s the whole junior high girl thing — so moody!

  4. OMG. Too funny. I use the, “Wanna make out?” line in any and all tense situations. Sometimes it diffuses; sometimes it makes it worse.

  5. I so hope my son turns out to have the same wicked sense of humor. So far, though, nothing, save for the made up (and unfunny) joke here and there.
