Conversations With Tbone




**see edit below**

This could srsly become a weekly post that I do. This kid comes up with the wackiest, funniest, wittiest stuff on a regular basis. I know a lot of kids do but Tbone is MY kid that does.

Here is this week's installment.

Last night I had given Tbone specific instructions after we got home from YWs and Scouts around 8:30pm (their usual bedtime). Go upstairs, take a shower, get on your pajamas and get in your bed. I hear the shower running & think he's right on track.

Cut to 20 minutes later.

I go upstairs and find him in his room, butt nekkid on the bean bag, playing Pokemon on the GameCube.

Me: What in the HECK ARE YOU DOING??

TB: I'm just.... I.... I just need to finish this battle...

Me: No. Turn it off now... you don't even have your pjs on yet? Tbone, turn it off now!!

TB: Why are you so mean? ::tears start brimming::

Me: I'm only mean when I find my kids not doing what they are supposed to be doing.

TB: Well then WHY DON'T YOU JUST SELL US ON eBAY?!?


I guess in the olden days kids said the black market? I like the new 21st century twist.


(Also, is that legal? Imma do some research and get back to you.)

*********EDIT******

Cooler heads prevailed after school today and Tbone & I discussed the "incident" last night. I was like "What do you know about eBay, anyway?" and he said "You know, from that one song... A++ on eBay!"

Oh my freak. Yeah. I know the song.

Just stay off Craig's list. That couple from Canada totally got busted!

Cristin said...

haha smart kid.

Katie said...

I can't believe you made him stop before he finished that battle. He is going to look like such a wuss the next time he plays. I am pretty sure they are all going to laugh at him.

Let me know about the ebay thing. I could really use the money-you know, the economy.

Jenny said...

haha!

Annie said...

My kids tried that line and we just said "Where do you think we go you from?"

Jenny ESP said...

What a QT-PIE, I'd buy him on eBay (<--cheesy comment). But I would bid super low, try and get a deal on him (<--that's better)

So, you should start "oh no you di'nt just say that Wednesday" and transcribe Tbone convos.

::getting out the notebook Annie sent me and making a section called Oh No You Di'int Tbone!::

Thanks for the idear Jesp! Now I'm worried he won't say anything funny this week. ::sigh:: The troubles of a blogger.

The problem with stopping mid-battle, I guess, is that he "can't save" ::gasp!!!::

Annie, I'll use that one next time.

ManicMandee said...

Anna's kids love that music video too.
Oh I like this story. Tbone is my favorite of your kids now.

Katie said...

Just saw the edit, and it reminded me about what I spent 52 dollars on ebay for...two tickets for the Antiques Roadshow. Totally worth it. I was on TV!! Good times...

Jenny ESP said...

Anthony needs to watch that video and actually learn something from it. But at least 90% of the time, he only window shops on eBay. Could be worse.

Memzy said...

He's always the fave. Just like Char--constantly getting in trouble but with way funny comments. You can't help but love em. Btw, my mom peed her pants on this one.

ps. those pics of T are to DIE for. To DIE.

Landee said...

Katie, plzthanks tell me you Tivo'ed that and we can watch it sometime in the future.

JESP, thanks for coming back and seeing my edit. It means a lot ::wiping tender tear away::

Memz, where is Aunt Visor that she can't come here and comment on her own peeing in the pants action??

Carol said...

Tiffers, Uncle Visor and I were gone for 2 days down to the Cedars Sinai ALS clinic getting info-d, updated, prescribed and supported, yadda yadda. I'll post. And yes, when I read Tbone's comment I laughed so hard. It was a great post to come home to. Thanks again for always making me laugh.

Hot Pants said...

Dwight was nice enough to make my kids a mix cd with that song on it. I get to hear it over and over and over and over and over.......and you know what? I still LOVE it!! Way better than the stupid Backstreet Boys!

Landee said...

Now HotPants, themz fightin' words right there. I do love me some Weird AL but I really love me some Backstreet Boys!! That song literally used to make me wanna cry I loved it so much. And I was like 23 when it came out. Nick. ::swoon::

Aunt Visor! Thanks for stopping by and commenting on your own bladder situation. Love you!
