Henry says some pretty hilarious things. I’ve been told that I used to say hilarious things once, but my parents didn’t write it down and cannot remember even one witty anecdote. Inspired by YHL’s Clara Conversations, I wanted to share some Henry-isms as I collect a critical mass.
Henry: (watching me put on just-out-of-the-dryer jeans) Why are you jumping up and down like a bunny rabbit?
Because sometimes being a lady is hard, son.
Henry: (zooming a race car on the track) He’s going to the chicken flag!
Me: Huh? You mean the checkered flag?
Henry: Chopsticks are something that you just fight with.
Or eat with. Or whatever. You probably know best. Just don’t hit your brother.
Henry: (looking in his Lego catalog): There’s BB-8, C-3PO, and the weird one that shoots things out of its head.
He’s not wrong . . .
Me: (pointing up at stars during a recent trip to Tuscany) Look! Look how bright all the stars are! We can’t see them like this in Rome.
Henry: What are their names?
Me: Hmm, I don’t know, wait there is Orion’s belt. Orion is a hunter.
Henry: A bounty hunter?
Definitely too much time with the Star Wars section of the Lego catalog.
Me: (Huffing up the hill after a heavy duty market run) Mac, I can’t hold your hand right now. I can’t push with one hand here.
Henry: I’ll push the stroller for you!
Henry: (Pushes for about 15 feet with assistance) I’ll hold Mac’s hand for you!
