Overheard This Week

Baxter (with authority): “Do you know what this family needs?”

Me (laughing already): “No…what?”

Baxter: “A pop gun.”

Baxter (anxiety-ridden): “When is our next dentist appointment?”

Me: “Not for three whole months, honey.”

Baxter (without hesitation): “Wow! That’s 12 weeks away!!”

Me: “How did you figure that out so fast?”

Baxter: “I multiplicated.”


Baxter, when no one laughed at one of his comments in the car: “Man! Tough crowd!”

  1. I’m still laughing at “tough crowd”!!!!

  2. Pop gun? Definitely an asset. I think. What is a pop gun?

    Hilarious. I think every “family” needs a popgun! (Very clever of young sir to pitch it as a communal need, when in fact it’s a more personal interest. A career in politics awaits!)
