    That’s Her Answer And Cheese Sticking To It

    | USA | Siblings

    (My 17-year-old sister and I just finished picking up some take out which includes my sister’s favorite food… mozzarella sticks.)

    Sister: “I love mozzarella sticks, they’re just so good. I wonder what kind of cheese they use the make them.”

    Me: *I flash my sister a blank look*

    Sister: “What? I wanna know what kind of cheese they use to make mozzarella sticks.”

    Me: “Really? What kind of cheese they use for MOZZARELLA sticks?”

    Sister: *confused look* “Yeah… oh… oohhhhhh… right. Mozzarella.”

    Only Transforms Into Disappointment

    | PA, USA | Cousins

    (I am quite a bit of an adult child in that I still like to collect and play with toys despite being almost 24, my favorites being Transformers of all types. My four-year-old second cousin comes up to my room during a visit.)

    Cousin: “My mommy said to ask if I can play with one of your Transformers.”

    Me: “Certainly! Which one do you want to play with?

    Cousin: “Which one do you have?”

    Me: “Well, I have lots.”

    (I let him into my room to show him my shelves and tables full of Transformers.)

    Me: “I have some that turn into cars. I have some that turn into jets. I’ve got some that turn into dinosaurs or animals or bugs. I’ve got big ones, tiny ones, and repaints of toys I already own. I even have some that turn into more than one alternate form and a few that combine into bigger robots.”

    Cousin: “Ooh… cool!”

    Me: “I have some from the original toy-line that I got from my dad, some from the movies, and some from the newer cartoons. That one over there talks. That one’s stuck as a tank because it took me five hours to get it into that form and now I can’t remember how to change it back, and this one here’s my favorite. I repainted him to look more accurate to his color scheme in the original cartoon. So which one do you want to play with?”

    Cousin: “This one!”

    (He took a non-transforming Happy Meal toy and skipped off downstairs to play.)

    Facebook Of The Dead

    | USA | Grandparents

    (My grandmother is visiting, and is on her Facebook. My dad notices that she doesn’t really know what she’s doing, and has about 50 friend requests. As she’s going through the list.)

    Grandmother: “Oh, [Dad], look, it’s [Name]. He died long ago; I wonder how he got on there?”

    Me: “…”

    Mew-sing On Your Job

    | Peoria, IL, USA | Sons & Daughters

    (My husband works for a newspaper. He takes our grade-school daughter to see his office. Later I find her making a box out of pillows and trapping our cat inside it.)

    Daughter: “The kitten is a journalist, so he has to live in a cubicle.”

    Hit The Show Running

    | CO, USA | Parents & Guardians

    (My dad and I are just leaving a fast food restaurant much later than expected mostly due to poor service.)

    Me: “Wow, it’s 7:45.”

    Dad: “Oh, I wanted to go running before 8.”

    Me: “Yeah, and [my favorite TV show] comes on at 8.”

    Dad: “Then we’d definitely better get home quick.”

    Me: *laughing* “I’m glad you understand how important [TV show] is to me.”
