Classic one-liners from Josiah

“Mom, do we have any distilled water?”

“What do you want it for?”

“To clean my paddle.”  [That would be his beloved Killer Spin ping-pong paddle.]  “I wouldn’t want to get lime scale on it.”  [because of our hard tap water]

Furthermore, Josiah announced. . .

“I’m going to clean the microwave.”

“Thanks, Jo.  That’d be great.”

I later opened the microwave and it was still all full of crumbs and junk.

“Jo!  I thought you were going to clean the microwave, but you didn’t.”

“Yes, I did.  I cleaned the control pad on the outside.  It was quite messy, and using it was making my fingertips yucky, which was then making my keyboard sticky.”

These kinds of comments aren’t heard around here regularly, but they sure make me smile!
