Micronaxx The adventures of Finn & Henry


Transient Witticisms: Slingin’ the Slang

  • Rookie dad-move: Acknowledging a bad word heard on the radio. Immediate aftermath: “Hey Finn, let’s chant ‘Badass.’ BadASS, BadASS…!!”
  • Finn’s decorated our street-facing window with math equations—in Spanish! So proud.
    He’s also added the word “mofo.” So, ehhh…
  • Finn appeared by our bed this AM with a clipboard, marker, & inexplicable Freud accent. “Do you vant your day to start vith ‘no’ or ‘yes?’”
  • Finn cocks his head in curiosity at saline sinus spray. “I would call this ‘Nose Champagne.’”
  • Finn introduces his new red lion to my childhood Red Kitty: "It's your brother from another mother!”
  • "Dad-O, what about 'ridunkulous'?" asks Finn. "It's more ridiculous than 'ridonkulous!'"
  • Asia intrigues Finn: “Those planets have a lot of ‘knees.’ Japa-knees, Chi-knees… And Germany has only one ‘knee.'”
  • "Dad-O, you shouldn't draw graffiti on things," admonishes Henry. "That's called 'fertilizing.'" (Er, "vandalizing," son. :-))
  • Our friends' 2-year-old calls fish "glub glubs." Finn's intrigued: "Does he call sharks 'killer glub glubs?’"
  • At 7:38am Margot is teaching the boys the proper use of the term “buzzkill.” I love my family. 🙂
  • Finn: "Why is it 'pee' and 'pull'—'people'?”
    Henry: "Yeah, what do people pull?"
    Finn: "Your leg!"
