The boys are just 2 (and piece) school days away from summer vacation. Monday. Tuesday. An hour and half next Friday to pick up report cards. Their systems on shut down now. They just want it to end. The days are long and sunny and warm and, really, who wants to be in school? No more than anyone wants to be at work.
I had the questions written last night but forgot to ask them at bedtime. So I meant to ask them at breakfast time but things ’round here got a bit hairy trying to get the oldest to realize that no matter how much he fought us he was still going to school. So I asked them at the bus stop. They answered the last question just as the bus pulled up. So there are only 8 this week instead of the normal 10. However, I’m sure you’ll find just as much humor crammed into these 8.
1. What are some things you want to do this summer?
Crash: go to the fair, play video games all day, and go to the beach
Bang: go to the fair, get new hamsters, go dumpster diving
2. Why does the sky turn pink or orange when the sun sets?
Crash: because some of the sun is blocked by hills and trees
Bang: Because the sun is behind an orange cloud so it makes the sky orange
3. How many peanut M&M’s can dad put in his mouth?
Crash: 30 because you have big mouth
4. what time should bedtime be over summer break?
Bang: 1 o’clock in the morning
5. What scares you?
Bang: a rattlesnake
*Nova Scotia does not have any poisonous snakes
6. What makes you laugh?
Crash: Cat videos
Bang: When you’re head’s on your butt
7. If you could trade feet with an animal, what animal’s feet would you have?
Crash: Elephant’s, no doubt
Bang: Horse because I want hooves
8. Would you rather have mom’s hair or dad’s?
Crash: Dad’s. but it makes no sense because you don’t have hair
