Gawd Bless Murca, Part II

Last night John and I were playing with his K'nex. We were building robots, who we would then pose and make the other person guess what they were doing.

I put a long K'nex in my robot's hands and pulled it over its shoulder. I thought it was fairly obvious that it was playing baseball. But I was wrong.

John: Is it holding a flag?

Me: No.

John: Is it holding a banner?

Me: No, not that either.

John: Is it taking off all its clothes running down the street singing "The Star-Spangled Banner?"

Apparently I'd used that phrase before, in an unrelated context, many months ago. See, kids DO listen to what you say.

  1. So? What *was* the context? Inquiring minds and all that, Krup.
