Seriously it just happened
Monster Teen decided to use the upstairs bathroom just a while ago, and it (the odious back-blast from his badonk) shook the first floor of our apartment.
Since Monster Teen is almost off his “Super Grounding Z” (patent pending), we’ve been slightly having fun with each other. Which means we get to have cool convos with each other again. Yay! My son was actually reading my poetry and giving his own interpretation for each. Which is cool, because since he plans to be the best percussionist EVAR, and write his own songs for his fantasy band, if my writing skills did some slimy leaking into his genetics – well I’m ecstatic!
Of course, then we had to go weird and think up Ninja Airlines.
So here was how it started. So I was talking about how chilly it’s getting and him needing some long johns. But I called them ninja pajamas. I call them ninja pajamas because the military issues long johns. and at one point they were black and silky. And they had little thumb-hooks. So cool. And so, if you were just running around in your long johns for spits n giggles, you’d feel all ninja-like.
Ahem. Anyway, so I’m explaining that all to the Monster T because he asked why I called them ninja PJs. And then he pointed out that our long johns are now tan-colored. So I explained that it’s for desert ninjas.
Monster Teen: But why would ninjas be in the desert?
Me: Ninjas are needed everywhere, and need to be able to blend.
M.T.: But how we they get there?
Me (with complete sincerity): Ninja Airlines, of course.
M.T. (pretending to be an airline attendant): Welcome to Ninja Airlines… I’m not sure if you are actually here, so I hope you enjoy your flight.
Me: Please remember that there is no jutsu while the plane is in the air. Only before take-off and after landing.
M.T.: No summons allowed in the seats. Yes, I know that they aren’t really pets and can talk and have awesome powers, but they must be left in pet carriers.
Me: Please no trying to jump out of the plane to run at ninja speed through the trees. We are NOT turning around to pick you back up.
Monster Teen: And please, do not try to hypnotize the pilot. We may crash.
I love my spawn. Giggle-snort.
