Things he says…

The other day at a restaurant, we saw some military personnel in their BDU’s (camo). Here’s how the exchange went:

Sean: Why are they dressed like that?

Me: It’s camouflage.

Sean: But….I can still see them.

Funny Zoo “Fact”

Sean, Mia and I went to the zoo yesterday. While standing at the flamingo pond, I overheard a mom tell her young children and her husband, “They sleep with their heads under water, you know.” She said this with all seriousness, not jokingly. Her husband gave her a funny look. Then she corrected herself by saying, “I mean they sleep with their heads in the sand.” Yeah, that’s better. In case you didn’t know, ostriches don’t hide their heads in the sand either.

The Aldabra Giant Tortoises were out and “active”, meaning they moved a few inches while they were eating. i find these to be very cute. I heard a mom tell her little children, “Look how big those are! Imagine getting attacked and eaten by one of those!”. Yep, when I see those, “fierce” is what immediately comes to mind. Never mind the fact that they are mostly herbivores. Maybe there have been cases of giant tortoise attacks on humans who were wearing Carmen Miranda hats.

Us can prep your childrens for kindergarten! Only $200!

I saw an ad today on Craigslist that advertised for a summer day camp to help prepare your child for kindergarten. I plan on homeschooling my children, but I looked at the ad to see what types of activities were planned as part of the program. I really got a kick out of the ad. Part of the ad stated:

” This will be a month long program with TWO CRETIFIED Rio Rancho Kindergarten teachers. “

I am not responsible for the capitalization… it was like that in the ad. Here’s more of the ad: (The parts within the <> are my doing.)

“Would you like to make sure they <are> ready for August?

If so than <then> this Kindergarten Camp is for your child.

Hurry and sign your child up today, there is <are> ONLY 8 spots available!
$200.00 for the month!”

Now, I know that you may think, “oh, those are just typos”. Yet, if you were advertising for an EDUCATIONAL program, and wanted to highlight the fact that you are CERTIFIED to teach, then wouldn’t it make sense to proof read and spell-check your ad?
