Double dose of funny quips

In this blog, there’s a category I dedicated to V called “V Quips”. It’s all about her witty and funny remarks.

Well, she doesn’t stand alone now in the funnies category. Nate’s vocabulary and speech talents have grown in the recent months by leaps and bounds.

Here’s a couple of the duo’s recent riot lines.

~~~

V, memorizing a Bible verse for Christian Education test. She quotes a verse in Isaiah, with feelings and actions: “All the grasses may wither and the flowers may fall, but your word shall remain forever.” (imagine her dramatic way of talking and acting.)

She pauses, with an discontented look. “Hmmmm, you know, Mom, it should be: All the grasses may wither and the flowers may fall, but your word shall remain for all. That sounds better, right? It should rhyme…”

(I posted this on my Facebook profile, but I wanted to share it here.)

I hear Nate getting back from his afternoon walk with the neighborhood kids. He races up the stairs and into our bedroom where I was napping. With twinkling eyes and that adorable smile (this little boy will break a lot of hearts), he gives me two gumamela flowers:

Nate to me: “For you! Put it on your ears… I know you love pink… Don’t let it die!”

And the punchline, with a half-wink (he still can’t do a full wink): “Papa never give(s) you flowers…”

All together now: *aawwwwww*

Enter, Miss V to burst the bubble… “You know,  sioti (little brother), Mom’s favorite color is blue. She hates pink.”

Bed talk, bird talk and more V Quips

A few recent nights have reminded me that bedtime is the best time for priceless moments and senseless talk with my kids.

One night the talk turned tender… To tenders, in fact. Blame it on too much cartoons, Nate has a a Kungfu Panda way of thinking whenever he hears the word “tenders”.

Me: Achi* ate chicken tenders for meryenda kanina.

Nate: Oooh, my tenders!

Patch: What?? Ma, what are chicken tenders made of?

Me (makapang-asar lang): Tenders of chicken!

Patch: *grossed out* x_x

After that, the kids spent a good few minutes shadow boxing. The girls’ hand-shadows *punched* Nate as he pretended to either evade or get hurt with the punches. Teehee. Kaaliw sila.

*Achi is Fookienese way of calling the eldest sister in the family.

If V has witty quips, Nate seems to have his own thing going too…

Nate: Ma, boys have bird ba?

Me: Yes.

Nate: Papa has bird?

Me: Yes.

Nate: Same size ba bird namin?

Where in the world do kids get these questions???????

~~~

Of course, I’ll never run out of V quips. Here are her latest. Continue reading Bed talk, bird talk and more V Quips

V Quips are back!

Actually, V has had a lot of bloggable quips since the school year began. But I haven’t had time to capture them in text or in photos. Finally here they are, though no photos yet.

On the way home from school one afternoon. In the background on the radio, there’s a contest being held for Supafest tickets. Give the correct answer to the question and you win tix. Question: What do you call the plastic at the ends of shoelaces?

V (in a calm voice): Aglets

Me: What?

V: Aglets. The answer is aglets.

Me: Where did you learn that?

V: From TV! I learned it from Phineas and Ferb. TV rocks!

Unfortunately, we were not fast enough to text the answer. Pffffft.

From a Filipino subject seatwork. Topic:  Pangngalang pantangi at pambalana. Panuto: Tukuyin kung ang salita ay pambalana o pantangi. Kung pantangi, isulat ang salitang pambalanang katumbas nito.

So far lahat naman okay, until…

Ateneo de Manila –> pantangi –> pandesal –> isang malaking X mula sa guro!

Me: Ano ‘to? Bakit pandesal??

V: Eh kasi it sounded like Pan de Manila eh…

~~~

Topic in English is how to use the dictionary, so she has been practicing searching for words in it. One day, she sounded… hmmm.. I dunno, parang excited or intrigued.

Blogging Your Way To Weight Loss???

This is the pointed question that I got from VGood this afternoon – 

V: Mom, are you really blogging your way to weight loss??? (with dramatic emphasis on “weight  loss”)

iMom: Yes, I think so. Why?

V (quietly, but with conviction): Liar.

iMom (almost furious): Huh?? What did you say??!??

V: How can you be losing weight when you’re sitting all day in front of the computer??

Uhhm. That makes sense. Thanks for the reminder, VGood (who, along with her cohorts, sometimes refers to me as the Computer Addict.)

(Warning: Segue ahead.)

The remark was brought on by the title of the article on Women’s Health-Philippines Magazine featuring moi Blogging Her Way to Weight Loss. V does not concur. hahaha 😀
