Thank you Homer Simpson for that fantastic one liner I use on a daily basis with my 12-year old son Ben. Today his inner smartness was shinning bright. He was bragging to Molly about being eligible for the Duke TIP program, a program to help brainiacs like dork boy succeed in school. So as he was quickly explaining to Molly how his intellect was far superior it came out like this:
Ben: "Hey Molly I have the gift for academically programed children"
Molly: "What did you say?" Already laughing hysterically at this point
Ben: "NO, I mean I'm in the program for athletically gifted children"
Molly: "What?" Laughing amazingly harder than before
Mom: "Dude, slow down!"
Ben: Now joining Molly in laughter and speaking slowly, "Ok, I mean I'm in the program for academically gifted children"
You go Ben and get that gift of academic program and while you're at it lay off the Mountain Dew slushies! It does a Mom's heart good.
