The Honking Goose

something to honk about

my kid said that 3

My 10yo was getting ready to go to school this morning in his Halloween costume. He was all dressed up in a trench coat and leather boots, with a chain around his neck, darkened eyes and fake blood on his face and blood-red hairspray in his hair. “What are you?” I asked.

“I’m a surreal killer.”

…was his answer. “I think you mean serial killer,” I said.

“Oh yeah, that’s what I mean, it just sounds so weird, like cereal killer. I’m a cereal killer. No, okay, I’m a serial killer.”

HAPPY HALLOWEEN!

    This year my brother went as a cereal killer- he stuck lots of boxes to his front with knives sticking out of them. I on the other hand have never liked Halloween spent last night making it look like nobody was in and watching a nature documentary.

    My first grader obsessed with saying serial killer. If he sees anyone remotely sketchy he’ll tell me, “they look like a serial killer.” I was feeling disturbed that he even knew what a serial killer was so I finally asked what a serial killer was and he simply said, “I don’t know.” He must have overheard it somewhere and, contextually, figured out they were not good people. Ha!

    Happy Halloween!

      Ah – kids are hilarious! I’ve definitely had my kids say the same thing. What does that mean? I don’t know. 🙂

    Too cute! Maybe your cereal should be put into a safe house until it’s safe to come back out.

    Gotta love the way kids think. Why would a child want to kill a box of cocoa puffs?

      It’s not a bad costume idea, eh? When our kids were really little, we wouldn’t correct them because their little mistakes and mispronounciations were so cute. But now they’re old enough that is only fair to point it out to them. 🙂

        Still so cute. I think my youngest brother was about that age when I caught him singing along to Jammin’ saying pajamas instead. Pajamas, pajamas, hope you like pajamas too. I did not correct him.
