Jack: (fresh out of a bath, and wearing a fuzzy robe) Mom, I can remember the machine in Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs!

me: You can? Okay, what is it?

Jack: It's the Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating Dynamic Food Replicator!

me: What the...? How did you remember that?

Jack: You really just have to remember the FLDSMDFR. (he says this
phonetically of course)

me: The Flidsimdiffer?

Jack: Try and say the whole thing!

me: Flint Lockwood Diabolical...

Jack: Noooo, DiaTONIC!

me: Okay, take 2. Flint Lockwood Diatonic Super Mutating...uh...
another D word...

Jack: Ha ha, it's "dynamic"!

me: How many times have you watched this movie with Daddy??

Jack: Oh, only about 600 times. Not too many.

me: You have one good memory.

Jack: Don't worry, your memory will get better as you get older Mom.

me: (oh boy) Thanks, but I think I've gone as far as I can in that department.

Jack: That's silly! It's not a department! Ha ha!

I was telling this story at work, and was told "This is a blog entry you know". Yeah it is. And I love the "email-your-blog-entry" feature! Okay, back to work.


  1. I just found my keys that were lost for 3 days. No way I could remember that. Way to go Jack!

  2. I hear that! You must have heard my cell phone ringing the other night because I left it on my desk! :)
