My husband just came into my office and said, “I’m going to have to change strategies with our daughter.”

“Oh? Why?” (I thought this had something to do with why I was hearing Xbox noise from downstairs.)

“Because she asked me ‘what is a victor?’ and instead of saying, ‘I’m busy with this database and can’t deal with you now,’ I said, ‘I don’t know. I’ll talk to you about it later.’ You know what she said next?”


“She said, ‘You know, I hate to say it, but you’re awfully stupid.'”

“Are you serious?”

“Oh, yeah. Just like that.”

“And you said?”

“I said, ‘Yes, if I were you, I would think that would not be a good thing to say.'”

I laughed so hard I had to worry about peeing my pants.

kH waited until I could breathe again and said, “So from now on, I’m going to say, ‘Go look it up.'” Oxford_English_Dictionary_2nd
