Conversations with Evelyn, Part IV

Richard: This computer is gay.

Evelyn: Every time the computer is gay to me I just push bottons and then it's done gaying.

Hahahaha. It doesn't sound so bad until you hear it from a three year old's mouth, huh?

Yeah, we do say gay and retarded a lot, and should probably stop. Richard said he's not going to though. Oh, well.

Amanda said...

Hahaha. Maybe he will if she says in front of the right people!

I always say retarded and stupid, too, which are now "bad words," apparently.

I also say "That's disgusting!" a lot, which the little kids picked up. When they say it, it sounds really rude. So I kind of feel like I should try to weed it out, maybe just save it for the really disgusting. And I'm definitely always going to save stupid for the really stupid.

yeah, there's a campaign to eliminate the "R" word. I find it amazing that we're no longer allowed to call people what they are unless it's good.

Like, it's okay for you tell me that I'm smart, pretty, and nice. But heaven forbid you tell me that I'm stubborn, controlling, and not very good at knitting.

I'm not advocating calling mentally delayed people retarded, that is mean. But I do know some pretty stupid people who have no disabilities . . .

Done gaying...that cracks me up. I hope I can become like a little child.
