Now why didn't that occur to me?

Conversation with my eldest:

Me: Hey, were you okay last night? You were so quiet after the movie, I was wondering if I had somehow hurt your feelings.

A: No, I was trying to see how long I could go without opening my mouth.

Me: Um. How did that come about?

A: Oh I just noticed at one point that it had been a long time since I'd opened my mouth so I decided to see how much longer I could make that last.

oh hahahahaha *snort*.

Wonder why that hasn't occured to MY oldest! (eldest - whatever)

Does she (it is the she?) often have interesting thoughts?

Please don't take this the wrong way (it's said with love) but I think you might lose if the two of you had a competition. ;-)

This is really true: I used to do the same thing as a kid. If you wait long enough your lips make a seal and it feels cool when you open your mouth, like velcro pulling apart. I used to do this on long car trips.

Okay, I'm taking my wierd self to clean the house now.

And conversely, I have K, who starts talking the second his eyes open in the morning, and doesn't stop even when he is "asleep". I wish my kids thought like your kids ...
