You Can't Handle The Truth Behind The Fence

Overheard today by the husband and me while we were bird seeding the feeders as well as on poo patrol:

7-year-old friend of next door neighbor kid: I had surgery on my balls. ***completely stated as a matter of every day fact***
neighbor kid: ewwwwww.
the husband and I: ***uncontrollable snickering***

*************

7-year-old friend of next door neighbor kid: who wants to see my big fat butt?
neighbor kid: Ido!



Kids are funny. I think if I had the time and if it wasn't almost 90-melting-degrees outside; I would have sat out there all afternoon obtaining free entertainment provided by the children next door. Who wants to pass up free laughter? These totally made my day.

Surgery on his balls? Yikes! That's gotta hurt! ;-)

Real Live Lesbian said...

YEOW! Agreeing with Jay on that one.

Who wants to see MY big fat butt???? Hilarious!

Last time I asked that question it landed me in jail... ;)

Kids are funny, I gotta say!

AmyTree said...

That's awesome. Listening to teenagers on the bus can be almost as hilarious, but one has to be very very careful not to snicker openly or one might just get stabbed...

Rock Chef said...

Kids do come out with some amazing lines - I love the way that half the time they just don't get how funny it is!

Tink said...

Kids don't care what they say. It's awesome. Well, at least it is when they're not your kids saying these things in public places. :P

Ian said...

Another thing kids don't care about - 90 melting degrees heat. Kids are strange, I don't trust them.

Emmeline said...

Hahahahaha. That's awesome. I love that the answer was "I do!"

And wow . . . surgery on the balls . . . that is serious stuff for such a young kid! I hope his future kids will be all right. But then again, judging from this little eavesdropping . . . maybe he doesn't need future kids. :)

jay: I'm not a guy, but I can't argue with you there!

rll: as if 7-year-olds have big fat butts!

r.e.h.: jail is not good. Not good at all. . . .

amytree: I'd get stabbed for sure then. I cannot easily stifle laughter. Um. BTW - you got a tough crowd there in your neighborhood! Be careful.

rock chef: this is why I'd be a terrible parent. I'd laugh at inappropriate things/times, b/c of the things kids "innocently" say!

tink: I agree. I love that they don't care what they say. When did I lose that skill I wonder?

ian: good point. I don't trust them either. . . . wait . . . aren't you in the neighborhood of having one in a few months yourself?

em: I thought the same thing - he's so young for a surgery on the balls, but I wasn't about to ask.

"nanni-nanni-boo-boo.....I've got a hoo-hoo..and you don't.!!" I loved it when My lil girl shouted that on the playground. Ever notice how there aren't any big-ol-huge rocks on playgrounds...
Geez....

Freakazojd said...

A ha ha, that's awesome! I love that about kids too, so honest and so matter-of-fact. :)

Fi said...

I thought the compensation for having kids was being able to laugh at them!?

Laughing at your kids is definitely one of the advantages of having them - until they get upset and punch you in the balls.

I'm told the main compensation for having kids - and reward for not alienating/killing them - is getting to be a grandparent, although I'm hoping it'll be a wee while before I find out if that's true.

Jen said...

tt: if my daughter would have said that, I would have died. Just died - from laughter, of course! That's fantastic!

freakazojd: just wait. Pengin's time is coming. . . . of which I am sure that you'll be posting about these things.

fi: this is awesomely beautiful advice & if I ever do have any children of my own, I won't forget this.

iain: please, please, please tell me this never happened to you. Your boys are all sweet and would never do harm to the family jewels. I'm sure of it. But, just know that I DID cringe for you when I read that sentence. Then I laughed - 'cos I'm evil like that.

Let's also pray to God that you are not a grandparent today or tomorrow; preferably not for a few years.

Kids do say the darnest things. :)

They are cute..

I can appreciate them from afar.

alli: I do love listening to kids!
