Lane Lunacy, Christmas Style

Heard recently in the Lane household–most often in the car:

Mate (after sipping from the wrong cup from the cupholder in the front of the car): Yeah– what’s IN there?

Me (eyes bugging in horror): “GUM!”

Mate (choking back laughter): “Mmmmminty!”


Chicken (wide eyed and ironic): “Yeah, Zoomboy– if you don’t believe in Santa, he won’t come, and then Big T and I will suffer from broken hearts!”

Me (horrified, because Zoomboy ain’t stupid!): “Careful, Chicken– remember Zoomboy gets S-A-R-C-A-S-M!”

Painful silence as everyone who can read tries to figure out this word.

Zoomboy: “Sarcm?”

Mate: “That’s closer than I got!”


Squishy Belle (when her father has not jumped on the gas pedal with both feet, whistling through time and space in order to see more Christmas lights in one go): “Green, Dad, GREEN!!!!!”


Squishy Belle (while waiting for Dad to come to the table with Taco Bell while we’re at the mall): “Mom! I’m getting POTATOES AND CHEESE!!!”

(This one has been boiled down.)

Me: “Mate, why can’t I access GoodReads anymore?”

Mate: “Because I blocked it.”

Me: “Why’d you do that?”

Mate: “You asked me to.”

Me: “Oh yeah… it was bumming me out…”

Littlewitch (via e-mail): THAT is a good Mate!


And for those of you who follow THE show… you will enjoy this.

    I love the earl ymorning eye candy but can't identify the show (no television!)

    As I finish the last of the preparations (for some reason I'm ahead this year), I'll be thinking of you all across the country and wishing you joy and love, although I have a feeling you already have quite a bit of those…..

    Merry Christmas to all you Lanes!

  2. Merry Christmas. Good video.
