Now that Vincenzo has nearly mastered the English language, I have significantly fewer “Quickies.” That makes these ones all the more valuable:
1. "Mom, watch out! That volcano’s interrupting!”
2. The second is from when I was doing physical therapy for my sprained foot. I was trying to stand on one foot with my eyes closed (doctor’s orders) and I kept falling over.
Me: Maybe it’s because I’m not wearing shoes?
Vincenzo: Or it could be because you’re not wearing a bra.
Me: [looking down] Touché.
3. This week Vincenzo told me when he grows up he’d like to sell Slurpees during the summer (because he’ll be a skier during winter). I’m planning on spending his college savings on…what else? Slurpees!
