Teen Talk Round 1

Teens and pre-teens can be quite comical, sometimes without even trying.  We decided to document some of the more humorous exchanges so we can remember them as the kids grow…and maybe tease them down the road.  Although Jason has some doozies at times, this Round 1 of Teen Talk consists of conversations with Jessa and Joel (and one of Jessa’s friends managed to find her way on the list too…)

Jessa, while researching an inventor from the 1800’s:  “Did you know William James Morrison had a Facebook page?”

(Probably not the same William James Morrison from the 1800’s.)

Jessa: “Are we having any sides with our pizza?”

Em:  “Sure.  What kind of side do you think we should have?”

Jessa:  “Bread.”

Em:  “Sweetie, pizza is bread…with tomato sauce and cheese.”

Jessa:  “Oh.”

Jessa:  “Is New York a city?”

Dad:  “Yes, but it’s also a state.”

Jessa:  “Does it have lots of buildings?”

Dad:  “The city does, but the state has lots of land too.”

Jessa’s friend:  “I’ve been to New York.  It’s just like Tennessee.”

Dad:  “Um yeah.  It’s just like that.”

——————–

Em:  “What are you doing?”

Jessa, while rewinding a tv show:  “Fast forwarding in reverse.”

Joel, upon seeing only veggies on his plate for dinner:

“Where’s the meal?!”
——————–

Dad:  “Joel, what do you need to complete your assignments?”

Joel:  “I don’t know.”

Dad:  “Joel, what do you need to complete your assignments?”

Joel:  “I need to know things.”

Dad:  “Joel, what do you need to complete your assignments?”

Joel:  “I need to get what I don’t know.”

Dad to Em:  “Please email his teacher and tell her Santa isn’t coming unless Joel completes his assignments.”

While attempting to work on Joel’s table manners…

Joel:  “Is a spork part of fine dining?”
