Random acts of blondness, part the fourth

On the way to summer school, the Roo-girl was struggling, struggling, struggling to untangle a knot in the chain of her necklace.

The Roo-girl: Oh, yeah, success!!

Evil Mother: You fixed it?

The Roo-girl: Oh yeah, I rule. I beat the system. Down with The Man!

*pause*

The Roo-girl: Um. Who's The Man?

Evil Mother: Bwahahahahaha.

The Roo-girl: Seriously. Everyone says "Down with The Man" but who's The Man?

Evil Mother: *still laughing* The establishment. Government. That kind of thing.

The Roo-girl: Ohhhhh. *glaring* It's not that funny, ya know.

Evil Mother: *knowing she is TOTALLY blogging this* Oh yes it totally is. You make me laugh out loud. You totally make me ...

The Roo-girl: DON'T SAY IT!!!!!

Evil Mother: ... LOL.

The Roo-girl: Don't EVER say that again. You are SO annoying.

Evil Mother: My job here is done.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The Roo-girl: Can I get some gum? My teachers let me chew it in class.

Evil Mother: Are you SERIOUS????

The Roo-girl: Yes. Chewing gum stimulates your brain.

Evil Mother: Oh please.

The Roo-girl: It's TRUE! Mrs. Sixth-Grade-Math-Teacher ALWAYS let us chew gum during standardized testing!

Evil Mother: *sigh*

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

This is my 300th post. Holy crap, people. Who knew I was so freakin' verbose????

Happy 300. Happy Annoying Roo.

A mother's job isn't easy.

I used to let my students chew gum in 4th grade and up...it keeps some of the kids sitting still...truth.

Kelley said...

awesome post for your 300th!

God I love it when we beat those Damn Emos!

HRH said...

hahahaha. love the verbal LOL. I mean I don't but you know what I mean in a torture-your-children-kinda way.

Congrats on 300.

Chewing gum stimulates the brain? So, that's been my problem all these years!

Tink said...

"Chewing gum stimulates the brain" sounds like it should go right up there with "Mayo makes the hair silky smooth". Oh man. I can't tell you how many times I went to school and my friends had greasy, stinky hair. Bleh.

Sarah said...

Yay on 300 posts!!!

*G* And...um...Chewing gum stimulates the brain? I wonder when my kid is going to start using that *lol*

Jenni said...

It drives Caleb nuts when we talk in internet abbreviations. All the more reason to do it more often. Sometimes we make a contest out of seeing who can use the most. We usually save this game for when he's trapped in the car with us and can't get away:o)

Congrats on 300. I am SO glad I'm not giving into the temptation to start exploring archives. I mean, I could get LOST out here.

Catwoman said...

Annoying this many kids must be a full time job. I don't know how you do it, but someday, when I grow up, I hope to be just like you.

And happy 300th!

Kaytabug said...

Congrats on 300!! But please refrain from using big words, big words are annoying me today.

I love my dose of laughter from you!!

Marmarbug said...

LMAO on the LOL! Do you say IDK? I would laugh if you did!!!

I can not wait until I can bequeath(my big word today) this annoyance on my own child. BWAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!


HAPPY 300th!!!

Burfica said...

whoooohooooo 300 posts, lets go have 300 donuts!!!!! Yeah yeah I'm craving donuts. dammit.

Her asking who the man is is funny. Sorta like when I called the hubby a dick head, and the kid laughed uncontrollably then asked me what a Dick was. hahahahaha I made him go ask his father.

You beat me to 300? Looky you. And, what's the great reveal? Shouldn't there be something? The idea of your teen thinking it's not good to stick it to the man should let you know she's turning out okay and will be a very productive citizen.

Rachael said...

Happy 300! I'm feeling a little mentally slow today, I think I'll go chew some gum.

Sandy C. said...

Woohoo!!!! Congrats on reaching 300!

ROFL, spending anytime in the company of a blogger means ANYTHING is fair game ;)

Excuse me as I head to Costco for 1,000 packets of gum....

lattemommy said...

Congrats on 300! Woot!

That first conversation is the best. I'm ROFLOL right now! :)

lattemommy said...

Damn - that was supposed to be ROTFLOL. Does getting them wrong piss them off more? 'Cuz I have to save these up for when my kids are teens.

Janet said...

And all this time I could have been blaming the man for my tangled up stuff. Who knew? Oh, yeah, Roo-Girl did!
Congrats on 300. I'm coming up on 200. Or I will if I start writing again. I've been slow lately. I haven't had access to the computer much in the last few days.
Chewing gum stopped me from biting my fingernails. Unfortunately I didn't discover this until college because our school wouldn't let us chew gum. It was a sin.
