Phil the orator: recent excerpts (updated Jan. 16)

January 4, 2012

“Are clone troopers on [Santa’s] naughty list?”

* * * * * *

Phil: “Look, Dad, you forgot your phone in the car. I got it just in time.”

Me: “Phil to the rescue!”

Phil: “I’m not a hero, Dad.”

* * * * * *

Me, reading from the Judith Viorst book: “It was a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day.”

Phil: “Why doesn’t he [just] say it was a bad day?”

* * * * * *

“When I get peas at school I pretend that the peas are army guys and the [pod] on the outside is the plane and when it comes close to crashing the guys jump out.”

* * * * * *

Me: “It’s bad to throw snowballs made out of ice.”

Phil: “Why?”

Me: “Well, if you hit someone in the right place, it could really hurt.”

Phil: “Don’t you mean, if you hit someone in the WRONG place?”

Me: “Right.”
