"My cousin smells strange, he's from Kentucky"  (explanation for why the neighbor's dog jumped at one of the cousins)

"It doesn't hurt but it will make your tongue feel weird for 2 days" (Didn't I say specifically NOT to lick the 9 volt batteries?)

"My grandma says I can't be a doctor because they have to clean up poop so I want to be a veternarian.  I saw one on Charlies Angels pull out a baby horse, it looks fun."

"My daddy says I shouldn't wear those" (comment repeated for each piece of clothing in her suitcase while trying to dress the littlest Oompa after her bath).

"But you PROMISED I could ride the bike in the front later, and its later now!" (shouted above the noise of a summer thunderstorm).

"I'm bored, there's nothing to do!" (it was 6:30 in the morning).

"Why does that lady keep talking?  She already said that stuff before and I'm hungry!"  (during Uncle's college graduation ceremony).

"Joseph signed a contract and he didn't even read it first!" (the contract written by the two girls states that Joseph can ride Rocky's bike for two weeks, but in return he must do everything and anything Rocky and his sister demand.  Failure to abide by the contract will increase the length of the contract by another two weeks!)

p.s.  I fixed my broadband.  Don't know what I did, but it works.  I guess I wiggled the right wire or something.  I'm a genius, what can I say?
