So, my oldest son, being 12, is learning all sorts of interesting turns of phrases. One he slaughtered tonight was when he attempted a sarcastic use of the term "boy-yow".
Me: "Boy-yow ... what's that mean?"
Him: "Er ... never mind."
Me (after contemplating what he said and how he said it): "You mean boo-yah?"
Him (red-faced): "Uh, yeah."
Love it. Then, later when he was embarrassed that I was actually posting this to my blog, I reminded him that there's no names posted here, so it was extraordinarily unlikely that his friends from school would see it, he said, "Oh, so it's unanimous."
I just looked at him, then asked, "You mean anonymous?"
Too funny! It's one of life's greatest joys to be able to embarrass your pre-teen ...
It’s Old-man Christmas.
