Linguistic Ladies' Man

Isaac came home yesterday and asked me if I knew what it sounded like when you repeated the name "Alexis" rapidly. I looked at him and shrugged unknowingly.

"AlexisAlexisAlexisAlexisAlexis." He shot out. My blank look continued. A grin spread across his face and he started, "AlexisAlexisAlexisIlikesexIlikesexIlikesex."

Ok, I admit it, I laughed before I asked how he happened upon such a charming discovery. He told me there's an Alexis in his class he was trying to annoy by saying her name over and over again when he noticed the similarity in phrasing. Since he didn't come home with a black eye I surmised he wisely opted not to share his enlightenment with the object of his annoyance/desire and commended him for such.

When he is old enough for car dates though, I think I will be glad enough we cannot afford to send him off in a Lexus.

i think now is the time that you tell him he was named after the bartender on The Love Boat.

Ah, the innocence, to guilelessly share that with his Mom. . .

;)

But, you know. . . 'I like sex'. . . He has no idea. . .

Hehehe I think he is a clever kid to pick that up...especially if he managed not to point it out to others!! In school I mean. As for the Lexus, I don't know mom, I mean the car parks itself! What a perfect car for a teenager!!

One of my fellow teachers is named Alexis. She'll wonder why I burst out in laughter when I see her next time.

Remember the days when saying "Chevy Van" also meant "I like sex?"

Craver Vii said...

There's a boy on my soccer team with that name. That is SO a girl's name!!

Jocelyn said...

You're so punny, poopsie.

Pretty cool how he broke it to you that he has a new interest...and I don't mean saying words fast and run together.

I drive the same type of car as Mary.

My 13 year-old son and his 13 year-old girlfriend just had their "seven month anniversary" with exchanges of presents and sickly sweet conversations with declarations of love. I don't think I'm going to let my son have car dates and any dates at all will be the old fashioned type with a chaperon sitting between the two.

I'm not a pheasant plucker, I'm a pheasant plucker's son. I'm only plucking pheasant's 'til the pheasant plucker comes.

(Alexis is a lot easier to remember)

Holy crap. Before I finished reading the post, I started doing the Alexis x 100 chant and sure enough, it turned into "I like sex."

Very clever.
