Tragic Sandwich

Food. Family. Fun.

Talking Points

Mr. Sandwich: We’ll try to strike a happy medium between oppressive control and Lord of the Flies chaos.

Me: I miss Brontosaurus.
Mr. Sandwich: What do you mean?
Me: They got rid of them. Now they’re Apatosaurus.
Mr. Sandwich: What? Why?
Me: Some kind of nomenclature thing.
Mr. Sandwich: F*%k these “Pluto’s not a planet” people.

Mr. Sandwich: The flooring in Gwyneth Paltrow’s home is made of stones from a Peruvian schoolhouse. In other news, the Peruvian children are now going to school in a tent.

Mr. Sandwich: “Toddler injured by piranhas?” Who lets a baby play near a piranha tank? Well, we are officially not the worst parents ever.

  1. LOL Gwyneth Paltrow. Somehow I’m not surprised.

  2. I WAS WONDERING WHERE BRONTOSAURUS HAD GONE! I kept thinking, “Huh, Apatosaurus looks so much like Brontosaurus used to. Guess they must have discovered aNOTHER new one….” At least one mystery’s been solved. But the Peruvian school children are probably still wondering where their schoolhouse went.

    Still giggling over the Lord of the Flies reference. I use that book frequently to describe what passing periods look like at my kids’ school.

    • I once worked with a guy who couldn’t stand even the mention of blood. I once said, with practically no context, “They’re sharpening a stick!” and he turned green. This is not an exaggeration.

  4. This post just made me laugh pretty hard 🙂

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my post! Sorry I didn’t think to tell you I was talking about your quote before publishing it but I am thrilled you found it!

    My heart breaks for your losses. I can’t begin to imagine how hard that would be.

    • Oh, that’s fine–if I didn’t want people to see it, I wouldn’t put it out there! No worries.

      It sounds like we’ve each had a hard time of it, in different ways. But we both have wonderful children, which makes up for it.

  5. Seriously, I just can’t accept the Pluto thing. I probably never will.

    Stopping by from SITS. Have a great weekend.

Talk to me!
