Real life from the crack of dawn....

Conversation in our house today:
Chris: "What happened to that new scale Mom bought?"
Me: "I took it back."
Chris: "But why?"
Me: "Because every time I got on it, I wanted to crawl into a ditch with a large pizza."
(I had bought a scale that measures not only weight but percentage of body fat, water, bone, muscle mass etc. HELLO!! Not a good idea right now. Focusing on weight is enough!)
BTW, Trey and Chris measured at 6 and 7 percent body fat, respectively. Can you imagine?
Chris to Trey: "Come outside in five minutes."
Chris, in a menacing tone: "Just come outside.... alone."
Trey, eyebrows up to his hairline, looks suitably freaked out, until Chris bursts into laughter.
Me: "Quit being such a SHANKAPOTAMOUS!"
Child: Dissolves into laughter.
