We were sitting at the dinner table tonight, and Zander sneezed. Rather than turn his head to the right and miss everyone completely, he turned his head to the left and sneezed on Jace.
Jace snaps at him, “Thank you very much for sneezing all over me.” To which Zander responds, “Sooooorrry!” (You know, in that tone that only a 5 year old can muster. Not a very sincere apology.)
Gene couldn’t stop laughing for like 10 minutes. When he finally calmed down, I asked him why that was so funny. He said, “Angie, these kids are spending WAY too much time with you. The way Jace said that is exactly how you would have said it!”
Thing is, he’s totally right. Of course, Zander gets the smart-alack tone from his father… not from me!
