Conversations With My Mother Vs. Conversations With My Daughter.

Mother:[41 years of age] Can you help with this blue tongue thing?

Me: [Suddenly feeling about a trillion years old] What?

Mother: It’s just. I want the pictures off my phone and on to my laptop. But the blue tongue thing doesn’t like it.

I stop grinding my teeth and stare at the wall for a while. I think of happier times.

Me: Blue tongue?

Mother: I thought you knew about this stuff.

Me: I’m not a vet.

Mother:
What?

Me: It’s ‘blue tooth’.

Mother: Well I’m not an effing dentist so there’s no need to be sarcy.

Me:
I’m going for a cigarette.


Some time later.


Favourite Daughter:[
Five years of age] Have you had your hair cut Daddy?

Me: Yes sweetheart.

FD: Why?

Me: Because it looked stupid.

FD:
It looks even stupider now.

Pause.

Me: ‘More stupid’. Not ‘Stupider’.

FD: Oh. Ok. Your hair looks more stupid now Daddy.

Me: That’s better.

You decide.

Maybe you should have just shaved your daughters hair, then danced around shouting "Yeah who looks more stupider now, huh? YOU DO! You're the stupidest!"

Or maybe you could have cut out your mothers tongue for swearing and followed it up with an amusing pun such as, "Whoops I cut your tooth out you stupid bitch!".

But then that would just be sick. And not even funny. Daughter wins.

It's a shame really as the government really does need a hand with the actual blue tongue thing. Is your Mum really only 41?

I just had a not dissimilar experience with my 3 yo singing 'mummy's funny hat, mummy's funny hat' (to the tune of 'twinkle twinkle') all the way home. They don't spare your feelings.

raspberry kool-aide popsicles will give you a blue tongue.

I like that better than "tooth" too. I'd far rather have a tongue in my ear than a tooth...

John: Get some rest.

Brennig: Get your own show.

Dinners: Erm?

Rach: I like the icon-thing.

Me: They're the best. I'm never left in any doubt as to whether or not it's time to trim my nasal hair either.

C: You don't look it.

Jali: It is quite cool isn't it?

Sew: Ok then.

Frenchie: Welcome back.

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction http://internet-aukcion.ru/ but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
