it gives new meaning to the 'happiest place on earth'

I paused when I heard him say it, certain I misunderstood him from the kitchen.

Then he said something about his favorite whorehouse again, so I poked my head around the corner and - trying to keep a straight face - jumped in to my kids' conversation.

Zack, clearly irritated with his bemused sister: It is my favorite whorehouse, right by the Pirates of Caribbean.

I exchange a puzzled glance with Lexi before Zack continues.

Zack: *sigh* It had ghosts and monsters and stuff. I like whorehouses. I like whore.

MM: Hey, buddy, I'm not really sure if you know what you are saying...Do you mean the Haunted House? In Disneyland?

Zack: YES! I like the whorehouse in Disneyland. Because I like Halloween and scary stuff. Like you.




I have to imagine he was pretty horrified to discover that 'whore' and 'horror' are not interchangeable nor is it appropriate to race around recess proclaiming 'I'm a whore' when you really mean to say 'Vampire or Ghost'.

This one should be fun to explain at the parent-teacher conference this week.

I can hardly wait.

When i finish snorting with laughter I will try and think of something appropriate to say.

But it may take a while.

This is one of the funniest things I've heard in a while. I can't wait to visit the "whore"house in a few weeks at Disney World.

I'm a big fan of whore movies.

If I knew Disney had whore houses, I'd have gotten the kids there a lot sooner.

Shana said...

At least the whorehouse didn't come to light during a "Where I went on my summer vacation" essay.

Amanda said...

Awesome! Avery has taken to screaming, "I comed on Daddy," after she climbs up for a piggy back with her sister.

I love kids!

I wish I could come to the conference with you.

I'm looking forward to the 5th grade movie when Mason proclaims to everyone that we say "Voldemort" instead of sex...

last night my ten year old taught my six year old how to spell "ass" thank you so much.

That is so hilarious! Simon has been saying "Oh Sh**" constantly for a few weeks. I think he means "what is it." It's pretty fun to be walking down the street, and have Simon exclaim from his stroller "oh sh**" every time a car drives by.

"I like scary things. Like you." That's the best! Oh this is one you'll be laughing about for years!! Great story. I love your kids and I haven't even met them...

That thar kid-ism might just be one of my all-time favorites.

Kimberly said...

Oh my!

I'm going to burst out laughing over that at some totally random point in time tonight, I just know it.

You've blogged it but you have to start a jar on your kitchen window called "a year of magical thinking" and write it down on a scrap of paper and stick it inside every time something like this happens, until next October. Save the jar. Read at wedding.

Stu said...

He is right, that is a great whorehouse there at Disneyland.

I never have enjoyed whore movies, but that whorehouse at Disney World sounds enchanting.

missburrows said...

there are a lot of hookers that hang out at the Disney hotels, so he's not all that far off.

Beck said...

Whoopsy.
I have a similar story involving an innocent child, possibly one of mine, and the phrase "doggy style." But I won't tell it.

Suzanne said...

This Halloween, I'm actually going as both things. A scary slut.

Jon will be all ready to go back for another vacation when I tell him Disneyland has a whorehouse now. How exciting!

Bless your boy. What a cutie.

Grandy said...

AWESOME!! It's all about the whores at D-Land. ;)
