Here's what happened at our house---
Nature Boy (a second-grader): I'm worried that I'm going to be in trouble.
NB: I got sent to the principal two times.
Me: (bites tongue and doesn't yell) What did you do to get sent to the principal?
NB: Well, I did a flip into music. More like a somersault, but I landed at the right part of the circle. And I didn't hurt anybody or anything.
Me: OKaaay. What happened the second time?
NB: I said, "armadillo rodeo" too many times in library.
Me: (bits tongue and doesn't laugh) Armadillo rodeo, eh? Bet that made your teacher pretty annoyed.
NB: Yeah, but I couldn't help it. It's too fun to say. I said it over and over and over.
One Week Later --
Me: armadillo rodeo. armadillo rodeo. armadillo rodeo. armadillo rodeo. armadillo rodeo.
Think they'll send me home from work? Because, really, I can't get "armadillo rodeo" out of my head.
