Kidizms - 07/21/14

     If I'm ever at a loss on what to blog about, I know I can always fall back on the crazy things kids say.  No matter how many times I've shared their comments here or on Facebook, their little mouths and minds continue to supply an endless stream of new and improved material.
 
    Like last year when my daughter's teacher was going over the three branches of government: executive, legislative and judicial.  As she went into deeper detail about the judicial branch, my daughter promptly raised her hand and volunteered this profound statement: "My aunt is a court."  Her aunt (my sister,) is actually an attorney.  Close enough.

     At the beginning of school last year, my son's teacher asked the students to draw a picture of something they did during the summer and write a sentence about it.  My son drew a picture of himself and a big fish.  He wrote, "I cot a 10 pond CRAP."  Translation~ "I caught a 10 pound CARP,"  which by the way is a fish tale as it was only about 2 pounds.  Thankfully, he didn't get in trouble for writing a cuss word on his paper. 

    My sweet little niece Marin, who just turned 6, says she loves to LERAX.   Translation~ Relax   Me too!!!!!!

     My nephew, Bobby, who is 5 visited us at the lake a couple of weeks ago.  We drove him by the dam the Tennessee Valley Authority uses for flood control and power generation.  We said,  "Look Bobby, there's a dam."  His reply?  "Did beavers build that?"   Then as I got ready to take him on his first jet ski ride he asks, "Does this thing have a seat belt?" 

    Finally, I have lots of proud mommy moments, but this is not one of them.  When my son was much younger, he spotted a woman who had apparently forgotten to wear her upstairs undergarment.  He taps me on the shoulder and says, "Mom, look... that lady has dot boobs."  What can I say.. he's all boy.

OFFICER IMPERSONATION-REAL OFFICER

MANASSAS, Va. (AP) --The fake cop tried to stop a real police officer. That's according to authorities in Prince William County, Virginia. County police have charged a Manassas teenager with impersonating an officer. Police say 18-year-old Joshua R. Rosene had blue flashing lights mounted in his car, when he tried to pull over an off-duty police officer. The officer says he thought the vehicle behind him looked suspicious. So, rather than stopping he called police. The off-duty officer followed the vehicle until backup arrived and busted Rosene.

TAXI OF TOMORROW

NEW YORK (AP) -- Think New York taxi and you're likely to picture a yellow Checker cab. But the iconic vehicles went out of production decades ago. Now, cabbies are driving the "Taxi of Tomorrow" looking for fares. Yesterday marked the first day for the new yellow cab standard in the Big Apple. The Taxi of Tomorrow is the Nissan NV200 mini-van. They have charging ports for riders' electronics as well as large skylight roofs. Taxi owners will be required to meet the new vehicle standards when they retire their old cabs.

Crime Museum Closing

WASHINGTON (AP) -- The nation's capital will soon be crime-free. No, the criminals aren't leaving town. But Washington's National Museum of Crime & Punishment will be closing its doors soon. The museum's Chief Operating Officer Janine Vaccarello says lease terms are forcing the museum out of its three-story building at the end of September. The museum charged nearly 22 bucks for an adult ticket and faced tough competition from the free Smithsonian museums throughout D.C. Crime museum officials tell the Washington Post they'll look for a new location or perhaps sell the collection.

CAMPUS BEAR

EAST LANSING, Mich. (AP) -- The bear is back. A 9-foot-tall stuffed polar bear is ready to welcome students at Michigan State University. It's now back at its post in the lobby of the Natural Resources Building after getting a summer makeover. It's been a campus fixture for decades. The Lansing State Journal reports the bear now has clean white fur, a new jaw and new pads on the hands and feet. Taxidermist Dennis Harris says he found a 1960 Seattle Times newspaper inside the bear's head.
