My son said something funny I can write about!

12 Feb



I’ve said numerous times that my son’s sense of humor is so obscene that I can’t write most of what he says. I attempt to keep my blog relatively family friendly and he tends to use far too many F-words for print. A while ago, though, he uttered the following gem.

My daughter and her friend were in the back seat, singing along to a favorite song. It was something kind of Selena Gomez-ish or maybe it was Call Me Maybe. Regardless, they were young girls and sang in those screechingly high, thin voices that make even in-tune singing painful to hear. The girls were not singing in tune. It wasn’t bothering me as I will accept just about any sound that isn’t whining. My son, however, is a musician.

“My god, Mom,” he said, “It sounds like somebody’s grabbed a camel by the testicles!”

    Hilarious! Read all your posts but genuinely look forward to the ones about your son. Beg you to post more, including F-bomb versions!

      Well, it’s not just the F-bombs that are a problem. He’s also very physical and does impersonations that are hilarious and difficult to translate into words. There is one story that practically leaves me wetting my pants. I’ll try to write it, but it puts me in a questionable position as a parent.

    Telling it like it is! Love it!

      And you’ll get to hear that sound in the not too distant future! My days with it are almost done.

        I can see where he gets his honesty 😉

    Needed a laugh, thank you. I am stuck with the image of a camel’s testicular grab!

      Oh, I’m so sorry! That’s quite an image. You should go wash your eyeballs.

    No doubt the girls were bouncing and making extremely expressive faces while singing….and brother probably had something astute to say about that, too.
    That kid is funny – keep him around!

      I think I will. He’s definitely a bright spot in my life.

    I remember before we had kids, my husband and I walked past a little girls’ softball game. There is a lot of screeching and squealing in little girls’ sports. He thought that was just about the most terrible sound he had ever heard. I believe he made the comment, “We are never having girls.” Now, he coaches my daughter’s basketball team. Ha!

      Young girls are VERY different from big girls. I am looking forward to the bigger girl phase, though I’m sure it will include even more critique of my clothes, my body, my friends, etc., etc.

    Lmao! Too funny.

      Thanks, though it should be my son thanking you.

    Big brothers are often gifted in the art of sarcasm. I remember when our daughter was in Kindergarten there was a classroom song that found its way to our living room. Watching my son’s discomfort I reminded him how nice it was that his sister wanted to share something from her school day. His response: Why are they teaching her to be annoying?

    Loved this post.
