Today's Specials

Me (exasperated): "Baxter, please keep those hands to yourself!"
Baxter: "I am!! (pause) And Lyle's not, either!"

Baxter (thoughtfully): "Mommy, am I allergic to poisonous gas?"

Comedy writer. Put me down for "comedy writer" when you begin taking predictions for Baxter's future line of work.

Both of those lines are fantastic. I love hearing kids talk partly because they say the wackiest stuff (Julia asked me today, while she sat in the tub, "Daddy, can you put a pwate of spaghetti on a rhino?") and partly because their comments are such clear little windows into their souls. Their twisted, crazy little souls.
