A few minutes ago, I told the boys, ages almost-8 and almost-9, to go unload the dishwasher. Emphatic protesting immediately ensued, until I reminded them that they haven't had to do it since the weekend. Now they're in the kitchen and I'm eavesdropping.

Aidan: I don't get the purpose. We unload it tonight, and we'll just have to unload it again tomorrow night. We should just keep it loaded.

Ian: Something reeks!!!!!

Aidan: Seriously, Ian, what's the purpose?


Aidan: You know what I hate more than unloading? Touching dirty silverware. It's disgusting.

Ian: This reeking smell is disgusting. Hello? Are you listening to me?

Aidan: Huh?

Ian: I just farted about a million times. HELLO.

bwahahahahahaha! Lovin' life with boys!
