It’s been a while since I shared some of VGood’s funny quips. Now that she is turning 7 and going to 1st grade by June, you bet her quips are wittier than ever.
We were driving to San Juan, where she and Patch were attending a Buddhist summer camp. Patch was interviewing me (as she always does), this time on the subject of traffic violations.
Patch: So have you ever done a traffic violation?
iMom: Ummmm… Yes of course. I beat the red light once.. Maybe twice.
Patch: So the police gave you a ticket?
VGood: Ticket? He gave you a ticket to the Dora the Explorer show??
Apparently, her mind was off somewhere. LOL. Or maybe it’s her way of telling me she wanted so badly to see the Dora show. No we did not go see it. Hindi ko gusto yung person who played Dora (isn’t she a bit too old for her character?).
VGood: Mom, can you please give me that mighty finding glass?
iMom: The whaaat??
VGood: (Getting impatient) *big sigh* That one, the mighty finding glass.
I follow the direction of her index finger. Oh, the magnifying glass! But, yes, it is a mighty finding glass in many ways too. 😛
It was kung fu and pizza night. We were watching a Chinese movie and pigging out on pizza, when, out of nowhere, she blurted out:
“Transforming our thoughts is the real wisdom.”
-as she assumed the lotus position.
Patch: Transforming our bad thoughts into good thoughts is the real wisdom.
VGood: For example, you’re angry. You need to sit down and be quiet. And then your angry face will turn into a smiley face! *draws a smile ala-KC Concepcion in her Enervon TV ad*
iMom and technohub are stunned. Our kids are lecturing us on wisdom and stress management! Of course, they have just finished the summer camp at a Buddhist monastery. That should explain it.
