Lady Killer

Friday evening Isaac wanted to know if we wanted to hear his mating call.  Before anyone could respond he cupped his hands around his mouth and let out a long, shrill how.  When he stopped he asked what we thought.  I told him it sounded like the Emergency Broadcast System tone and suggested he work on a less grating mating call if he hoped to attract anything other than a banshee....or perhaps an EMT.

The same night we were getting ready to have dinner at a friend's.  Calypso moaned that it meant she had to change out of sweats and actually put on a bra.  Isaac's retort was, "The males in their house are 7 and 38, both are out of your range.  It's safe to go as you are."

Saturday I had fully indulged my slothful side by sleeping late and padding around the house in slippers and a robe well past noon.  I announced I was going to take a shower.  Isaac replied, "I prefer to ferment in my own natural juices."

My boy is ever the charmer....

Your boy is hilarious. I had one like that. They do outgrow it - which is one of those good news/bad news things. ;)

I don't know if he looks like you, but I certainly hear your voice in his. Heh heh.

He's a Lady Killer all right. . . but only if they stand too close to him. . .

His last comment sums up the reason I think baths are gross - I don't want to ferment in my own juices.

Hmmmmmmm. I never considered whether I have a mating call, let alone broadcasting it to My Mom. Sounds like a good idea, though. I'm already happily married, so maybe I had one but didn't know it!

Those apples have not fallen far.
I would love to be a fly on the wall at your house, but only if all the kids are home for added fun!

That Isaac got the humor gene from his mother.

And BTW, what would be wrong be Isaac bringing home a lovely EMT to meet the folks?

Well, we'll see what puberty does to his attitude!
