We took a family trip to have frozen yogurt last night. This is the same yogurt place that has a giant chalkboard along one wall, and there’s only one thing to do when we go: Make Silly Speech Bubbles.
The Joneses know how to rock the nerd vibe.
“A party with 100 people all talking to me? Bring it on!” Not a hilarious speech, except that it’s paired with Bookgirl, who spends most of her day with music in her ears and reminds siblings on a regular basis, “Don’t touch me.”
Sparkler expressed the following line of thought after thoroughly enjoying her yogurt. (Sparkler either thoroughly enjoys or is thoroughly disappointed with something. Not a whole lot of middle range in her emotional spectrum.)
“That was sooo good! Yogurt makes you happy! I guess that’s why they always do that in sitcoms, where people eat ice cream after a breakup. They eat ice cream and cry. But it never works.” Pause. “I bet Taylor Swift has to go to the gym four days a week because of all the ice cream she’d have to eat.”
