“That’s what Edison’s assistant said”
Me: “You know what I’m hoping for tonight? An Adventures in Odyssey.” This is where the youngest three and I hop into our jammies and flop across our bed to listen to an AIO episode in the dark.
Number Two: “I’m hoping to wreck it.” This (tongue in cheek) from the guy who ends up instigating much of the racket. If he’s in on it, it’s an adventure alright; the kind that ends in wadded-up bedding, thrashing and flailing (in the dark, remember), and a younger sibling being shoved out of bed.
Number Three (the one who ends up on the floor): “That’s not gonna happen.”
Number Two: “Oh, yeah? That’s what Thomas Edison’s assistant said when he was inventing the light bulb.”
I wonder if there’s a boarding school nearby.
