Some days this blog is a little like that overseas pen pal, that you were assigned to write to in elementary school, that never wrote back. I don't expect comments on my posts, but I sure get a kick out of them when someone takes a moment to leave one:)
Apparently, my need for adult interaction with others has been reduced to looking forward to comments on a blog...I know, I need to get out more:)
Anyway, I said to my husband the other day that I get tired of "being a broken record" and it occured to me that my children probably won't understand that phrase, due to the fact that I don't believe they have ever even seen a record. When I say record, they think Olympics or might think I was refering to the Guiness Book of World Records...I'm sure they would believe it if I told them that I hold the world record for World's Wackiest Mom:)
I guess maybe I could relate to them by saying I'm tired of being a scratched CD or DVD, which they would totally understand because I don't know if we own a CD/DVD that is not currently scratched. That's what happens when you have five very independent children that love listening to music and watching "kid's shows". But actually, I'm quite certain that the downloading of pretty much all media will wipe out any form of that phrase whatsoever.
Which leads me to my fun, yet needy, attempt to get a few comments...
Can you think of any phrases that young children today wouldn't understand? If you're feeling spunky and up to the challenge of some brain work today, leave me a comment and let me know what you come up with!
Really, you can do it...
I'll be waiting to hear from you (wink).
