i just had to share a conversation that was had at the dinner table tonight that basically made me cry-laugh/hyperventilate for about 5 straight minutes and i fell off my chair. i literally could not talk/breathe because tears were streaming down my face from laughing. these are the moments you can never get back and which can never be replaced, and which you have to record/write down because you don't ever want to forget them because you were going to die from laugh-crying. god, i love my kids. you guys think i'm making this up but this is how it went down, word for word:
me: so what happened at school today, was it a good day?
miller: yeah, it was awesome. today we got to make up our own egyptian god, which would be whatever god we wanted to be, so i was Blushy, the god of awkwardness.
me: omg (attempting to stop myself from snorting food through my nose)
miller: so basically, my magical power is that sometimes i help people when they're having awkward moments, and sometimes, i'm just awkward.
me: whut? (losing my ability to breathe from laugh-crying)
miller: and i have the head of a raccoon and i'm wearing a tuxedo.
bram: well, that is awkward. (pause) invite me to a garbage party?
me: (falling off chair onto floor)
