Overheard at the Wright Household

Mom: "Orville, can you carry out the boxes in the hallway and put them with the recycling stuff outside for the trash?"

Orville: "Okay….I can't get the door open."

Mom: "Just a second."

Orville: "One Chimpansee." (the lenght of a second. My great uncle counted them in chimpansees. So do we. That's four generations of second counting.)

Mom: Comes over and looks at him, looking amused.

Orville, with a tiny impish smile. "That's not how you are supposed to respond."

Mom: "How am I supposed to respond?"

Orville: "You're supposed to say: 'Not that second.'"


(He got that from his father.)



Juss has been making Origami Yoda, Darth Paper, Fortune Wookiee, Norm Troopers, and Han Foldo. All this, I am okay with. But I lost it when he came home with:

Darth Paper Towel.
