Never was, never will be...

Today, Punkin and I went to her school for a "meet and greet" with her new teacher. Punkin officially starts school on Thursday.

We found her classroom, put her supplies away, met with her teacher and saw a few of her fellow classmates.

As we were leaving, we stopped by the school supply station in the foyer to pick up a D'Nealian Notebook. After we had paid for our purchase, I asked:

Me: "Do we have everything we need?"

Punkin: "Yep."

Me: "Ok, let's rock."

Punkin: "Let's rock? What do you mean by that?"

Me: "I meant "Ok, then. Let's go." I was trying to be cool."

Punkin: "Well, you were really bad at it."

Talk about your total burn...

William - Total.

Try "Let's hit it!" next time. Works ok with my boy. You might need a small pause between "let's" and "hit it" though. Oh, and deepen your voice. Make it sound like that dude that introduces all the movies.

What's a D'Nealian Notebook?

*heh* Wait till she's 12 and entering 7th grade: embarrassing her is almost not fun anymore because it's just so damn easy to do!

Kids can sense cool the way dogs can sense fear. And they attack with the same viciousness.

Better to be a "cool" fool,
Than a ghouls tool.

Punkin' will have to clue you in on the latest argot.

Circus Kelli said...

Mr. B - I might just try "Let's go." :)

LadyBug - It's one of those notebooks with the lines for learning cursive letters. I can never find it at the store, just at the school store.

Eclectic - I can wait. :)

Nilbo - Thanks for that encouragement.

Doug - Hi!

William's Brother - You forgot "make like a banana and split", and "make like a baby and head out". ;)

It times like this when you might want to wave the gun around wildly to restore order.
