A page dedicated to all of the funny things Will says and does.
Cindy and I had really hoped to have caught all of the funny things he has said over the years in a nice neat book somewhere. Now we have caught a lot of things, unfortunately we wrote them in multiple places and can’t recall where exactly those places are. Ah, the online journal/blog – a perfect cure-all for my “organizationally-challenged” lifestyle. Unfortunately it won’t cure the fact that many of these will be much more entertaining to Cindy and I than they will be for most others. Here are the first few “Will-isms”:
“Dad – please don’t eat all of the ‘nem-men-nems’ (referring to M&Ms).” – September 2005
“When I get to be 90, I want to go to a really big work like you do daddy.” – February 2006
“I think the P.U.S. truck came with a package.” – June 2006 referring to the UPS truck.
“If I wake up in the office and say ‘Hmm, where are I?’ I will just go into Grammy and Poppy’s room and get them up.” – June 2006 referring to when he “camped out” in the office while Grammy and Poppy were visiting and staying in his room.
“I think that factory is closed. I can tell because there are trees growing on top of the building.” – June 2006 referring to a run-down factory in Rock Hill.
“I just checked on Stewart Mom, and actually she was up to good.” – June 2006 when Will checked in on what Stewart was doing after Cindy rhetorically asked/commented: “I wonder where Stewart is? I bet she is up to no good.”
“Last one out of the house is a Man Biscuit!” July 2006 – Will’s favorite phrase to yell out whenever we are all leaving the house together. Sometimes he prefers to replace “Man Biscuit” with “Rotten Potato” just to up the ante a touch. If anyone can tell us what a man biscuit is without being profane, we are all ears.
“Mom, I have a flavor to ask you” August 2006 – Will still working through the finer nuances of the english language.
“Hen Jorge” August 2006 – pronounced “Hen hor-hey”, this is the name of one of his most favorite race cars. When asked how he came up with this unique name for a car he simply stated that he “heard it on a commercial when the tv was not on.” If we ever needed a reason to limit television watching…
“When I turn 4…” September 2006 – A few weeks prior to his 4th birthday and Will is all about the proclamation. For example – “When I turn 4 I am going to ride my bike, drink without a straw or sippy, and wash my own hair.” I can’t wait to see what 5 brings – my vote is for “mow the lawn”.
“When I grow up…” October 2006 – When asked what he wanted to be when he grows up by his Grammy and Poppy, Will responded with “I want to be a builder and fixer so I can wear a pencil behind my ear.”
“It doesn’t turn off, you just have to plug it out.” October 2006 – Referring to an electrical item without an on/off switch, Will reminds his dad that you don’t turn it off you simply have to plug it out.
“Actually I prefer the Charlie Brown CD.” December 2006 – Response provided to his Nanny when asked if he liked listening to The Wiggles. This holiday season Will went Charlie Brown crazy.
“Mom, the CVS truck came again!” December 2006 – Will telling Cindy that the UPS truck returned to our house with another package.
“This is exactly what I was hoping it would be!” December 2006 – Will’s favorite response when opening presents this Christmas. It was usually preceded by a bug-gulping audible gasp.
“The napkins are deleted” January 2007 – Referencing the nearly empty napkin holder. One of Will’s “chores” is getting napkins for the family meals (and straws – go figure) and today when the napkin holder was almost empty he exclaimed (much of what he says is exclaimed) this. We think he meant depleted which begs the next question – where did he pick up the word “depleted?”
“Poppy, do you have a 3-guy tent – dad only has a 1-guy tent.” May 2007 – Will asked this important question of his poppy after his first full overnight camp out where he spent the night in a 1-man tent with 2 “men”.
“Daddy – guess who I am cheering for? The Great Big Packers!” October 2007 – What Will calls the Green Bay Packers. Of course he would only be cheering for them if they are winning (he’s a bit of a fair-weather fan these days).
“Mom – pause the book I want to get a drink of water.” October 2007 – clearly a Tivo generation.
