Smarty-Pants Son Strikes Again

Tonight's smarty-pants comment:

LegalMist's husband was teasing LegalMist's son ("LMS" - 7 years old) tonight. I don't even remember what the teasing was about, but LegalMist's son had taken all the teasing he could take, so he grumped:

"You're an idiot, Dad!"

We can't have the kids calling names so of course I jumped in and said, "LMS, that's not nice, and it's not true. Your daddy is one of the smartest men I know."

So LMS muttered under his breath: "You must not know very many men...."

I would have chastised him for that, too, but my husband was laughing out loud, so I'm pretty sure it wouldn't have done any good.

Interesting Study Results

In addition to forwarding funny videos and jokes by email, sometimes my friends forward to me interesting facts or abstracts from scientific studies. This one is particularly fascinating, and was forwarded by my friend Nancy, an expert in relationship studies:

"A study conducted by UCLA's Department of Psychiatry has revealed that the kind of face a woman finds attractive on a man can differ depending on where she is in her menstrual cycle. For example: if she is ovulating, she is attracted to men with rugged and masculine features. However, if she is menstruating or menopausal, she tends to be more attracted to a man with duct tape over his mouth and a spear lodged in his chest with a bat up his ass while he is on fire.

No further studies are expected on this subject."


I've been so busy lately. I'll get back to writing real posts, instead of copying from my emails, soon. I promise.
