Still Questioning

Everyone seemed to really like it that Porter asked so many questions that I lost my cool.

FYI, he’s still asking as many as ever. Today when we got home the lawn service was cutting the grass and I didn’t hear from the duo for at least fifteen minutes, except once when Drew ran downstairs to say, “Hey Mom, if you have to talk to us in front of the guy mowing the grass, be sure and call me ‘Fred’ and call Porter ‘Bobby.'”

“Why would I do that?” I asked.

“I don’t have time to explain– just do it, okay?” He ran back up the stairs.

During lunch (a nutritious bowl of Beef-A-Roni seasoned with Tabasco and oregano) the boys laughed about their adventures in the front yard, while I just hoped they had not driven the poor man crazy.

I gathered that they peppered him with inquiries such as “Do you like Mountain Dew” and “Have you ever fried beef jerky?”

Apparently he still has his sense of humor intact:


Beware all Glamore visitors! My boys just might talk you to death.


Cute picture alert, as well as skilled rhymes:

  3. This is the funniest thing I’ve seen in a long time!

    And I’m SO glad someone besides me feeds their kids Beef A Roni once in a while.

  4. Hilarious!

    My son, too, definitely believes that there are no stupid questions and feels no shame at asking anything that pops into his head. My husband is convinced that he has a rare form of Tourette’s which compels him to ask questions incessantly.

  5. Fantastic!! There are no servicemen here that have escaped from at least one of our four either.

    Honeybell’s last blog post..Hi, I’m Your Nurse. What Stupid Fucking Thing Did You Do?

  6. Oops, meant to disable. Sorry about the whole F-word thing.

  7. So awesome that the lawn guy had a sense of humor. You should strongly suggest to his supervisors that he get a raise for hanging with Fred and Bobby.

    Renee’s last blog post..Risk

  8. My nephew is the King of Questions! Once when he was coming to spend the night, his parents were giving him standard issue “Be good while you are a guest” speech. He interrupted them and said, “The only rule Aunt K has is that I not ask her any questions.”

  9. Hilarious! It sounds like you have the perfect lawn guy for your family.

  10. Does he charge extra for the question and answers?

  11. just for the record – i love fred and bobby. kids think of the darndest things. it’s hard not to love them!!

    Supermommie’s last blog post..Random thoughts – safe emailing, va-ca and dog ass

  12. AWESOME. You make me wish I had more than one boy. And that’s saying something.

  13. He didn’t charge you extra for the Q&A session did he?

    Russ’s last blog post..Random Thoughts 2, by Russ

  14. How funny – my boys are 3 & 1 and while the 1yo doesn’t ask any questions yet the 3yo makes up for him!!!

    I see you linked up on my flashback friday back in May. I’m so far behind on emails I’m just getting through them now, but please come back and play again some time if you’re so inclined!

    Colleen – Mommy Always Wins’s last blog post..If I weren’t a Mom, Summerfest would have gone like THIS.

  15. That is the best I’ve seen in a long time. My youngest son ALWAYS tells ANYONE who’ll listen his latest “hunting stories”. Ha. Absolutely love your blog!

  16. found you via Perfect Posts… can’t wait to come back!

    D’s last blog post..Just D on Thursday

  17. Today’s post with the scan from the yard guy had me laughing so hard I damn near busted my stitches from my recent Lifestyle Lift. I gotta lay off your site for a day or two until the swelling stops.

    I am a single mother to a pre-teen boy, a divorce lawyer, and I stop by your site for a grin from time to time. You never disappoint me!
