Everyone I know is always sharing funnies that their kids say. Drew says the most hysterical things, but I never think to write them down. Part of the reason I started my blog in the first place was to capture all these funny things he says. He's one of those kids that comes up with the most outrageous stuff. Or he'll bring up just half a conversation like the time he asked daddy about his other woman (you should have SEEN the look on husband's face when that came up! ) It ended up being about his motorcycle. "You remember, Dad", Drew said as daddy swore profusely that there was no other women, and then begged Drew to clarify what he was talking about. "You told me that your motorcycle is like another woman!"
So tonight we were driving to "the big city" to drop off the "other woman" at the Harley shop so she can get some new parts added to her. Drew told me very seriously that he is going to change his name. I handed out a few good suggestions like Bob and George and Elmer. He didn't like those. No, he needs a pirate name. Hmmm... what's a good pirate name? How about Peg Legged Paul? Nope. Shorty McForty? Nope. Drew wants his pirate name to be Jack. I couldn't for the life of me think of why Jack would be a good pirate name. Who has ever heard of a pirate named Jack?!
Ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhh..... ya. (light bulb)
Ok, so there's a famous "fictional" pirate named Jack. Then Drew is picking out a last name and tells me that he wants his last name to be Pot.
Now my mind is racing. Huh? When has he ever heard of pot? I've never talked about pot around him before. It's not something I've really discussed with him and heck, I don't even know much about it myself.
As my mind is trying to figure out where he's heard about pot before I hear him say, "Wouldn't that be great, Mom? Then everyone can call me JackPot!" hahahahaha
(my very slow moving, and apparently trash filled brain finally processes this and yes, the light bulb goes on yet again) Ohhh! Hahaha! Jack Pot! Good joke, Drew!
So, written down for posterity, or at least to make fun of him when he gets older, is a Drew Funny.
