    Rock And Drum Roll…

    | CA, USA | Parents & Guardians

    (My dad mentions he is going to a concert.)

    Me: “Oh, who are you going to see?”

    Dad: “Styx.”

    Me: “Oh, cool.”

    Dad: “I always thought ‘Styx’ and ‘The Rolling Stones’ should go on tour together.”

    (It takes me a second to figure out why.)

    Me & Dad: “The Styx and Stones tour!”

    Dad: “Yeah!”

    Me: “Oh! Maybe Styx and Stones really will break their bones… especially if Keith Richards is still performing…”

    The Childhood They Need, Not What They Deserve

    | MN, USA | Parents & Guardians

    (My siblings and I are playing Apples to Apples with our parents. My sister is currently judging. The adjective is ‘unconventional’ and she chooses “Batman” as the best match.)

    Mom: “What? Batman? He’s not unconventional!”

    Me: “So… if one of your children decided to start dressing up like a bat and fighting crime, you’d consider that a perfectly ordinary life choice? Good to know.”

    A New Spin On Potty Training

    | NJ, USA | Children, Siblings, Sons & Daughters

    (I am 26, and my brother and youngest sister are 10 and 8, and well into the ‘potty humor’ phase. After putting up with yet another round of fart jokes, I turn to our dad.)

    Me: “Dad, I realize this is going on 20 years too late, but I am really sorry for my potty humor phase when I was that age.”

    Dad: “[My Name]… s*** happens.”

    You’re My Fractional Favorite

    | OR, USA | Siblings

    (I named my daughter after both of my sisters: the first letter of her name is the first letter of Sister #1′s name and the last three letters are the same as the last three letters in Sister #2′s name.)

    Father: *to Sister #2* “[My Name] must love you best. You got three-fourths of the name.”

    Sister# 2: “I’m three-fourths the woman [Sister #1] is!”
