First Fight of the Week

This morning...

Sarah: "You're a dullard."

Darren: "No, YOU'RE a dullard."

Is it odd that I felt a swell of pride at their selective -- albeit antiquated -- choice of insult?

LOL! Did they hear that in a story? How funny.

I gave them some homework on my blog to keep them busy. Can't wait to see what they come up with!

A dullard LOL. I haven't heard that one before. They are even cute when they are fighting.

They got the word "dullard" directly from a book we read a lot over the Fourth of July patriotic book extravaganza in our house...it's called "John, Paul, George and Ben" and is a hysterical send-up of John Hancock, Paul Revere, George Washington, Ben Franklin and "independent" Tom (Thomas Jefferson). Of course the author makes all sorts of subtle links to the Beatles for the adult readers...it's a hoot of a book. But be forewarned, in addition to calling people "dullards" (Thomas Jefferson did that) there's a scene wherein townspeople tell Ben Franklin to "Shut Yer Big Yap!"

Waiting for that one to come back and haunt us now....if "dullard" stuck....

This is just so cute! At least they are learning their insults at the right place - at home.
