That Robbie, he can talk to anyone! Last night at their gymnastics class I was listening in — surreptitiously since no parents can come into the gym area — and heard Mr. Non-sequitur say “I saw the BIGGEST palm tree outside!”
OK, doesn’t have much to do with the task at hand, ie runningjumpingtumbling, but not bad.
Then after class I was talking to the coach and Robbie said to her “I have to tell you something!” She bent down. “There’s this bad, bad guy and he keeps calling…” And I’m wondering where exactly he’s going with this. “And he has us on his list!” And then Mike chips in with “And it is so irritating!”
By this time I’m cracking up and have to jump in to explain that Robbie is telling her about the telemarketers that call us! My response to them is always “Please take us off your list and don’t call again” and then I hang up. Every time the boys hear this they go on and on about how irritating it is! I had to explain to the coach what was going on and she cracked up too.
Palm trees and telemarketers. Good times, good times.
