Picture it. The girl and I had just snuggled up together to watch a beloved holiday special for, presumably, the 12th year in a row when this happened.

HER: “Why does Susan keep moving the football and messing up his kick?”
HER: “SUSAN!!” (exasperated) “Or whatever her name is.”
ME: (surprised) “You don’t know her NAME?”
HER: “Nope. Guess not.”
ME: “It’s Lucy. LUUUUU-CEEEEE.”
HER: “Oh. That sounds a lot like Susie.”
ME: “What the … Who the heck is Susie??”
HER: “The little blonde girl. You know, the one who likes Linus.”
ME: (dumbfounded) “You mean Sally??”
HER: “That’s right. Sally. Sounds like Susie to me.”
ME: “So … you thought two of the Peanuts character names were SusAN and SusIE?”
HER: “What??? At least I know Linus and Charlie Brown. Oh, and Dirt Bag!”
ME: (under my breath) “Oh, my God.” (flabbergasted) “DIRT BAG?!!?”
HER: “Yeah. You know, the dirty kid. What’s his name again?”
ME: (pulling my hair out) “It’s Pig Pen. PIG!!! PEN!!! How do you not KNOW this?”(chastising myself) “I feel like I’ve failed you as a mother.”
HER: (laughing at me) “It’s fine, Mom. As long as I know Snoopy, right? … And Woodchuck.”
We write LOL quite a bit, here on the internet, but I actually DID laugh out loud with “dirt bag” and “woodchuck” ..in fact I want to share this all over social media because it’s the kind of chuckle the world needs right now.
Psst. I think she’s just messing with you.
Thanks, Kir. I think I actually WANT to believe that. 🙂
Have a great Halloween.
She has to be kidding. She just HAS to be. Right…?
hilarious! Dirt bag! bahahaha!
lol Thanks for the laugh… I do hope she’s messing with you.
😀 that was too funny. Stopping by from mama kats kelley at the road goes ever ever on
Well I mean…he is a bit of a dirt bag. I think I like her names better.
My teenage girl started forgetting the names of people all the time (Aunts and Uncles included). I have been chalking it up to hormones. It could also be a power trip because she knows it aggravates me and what better than to aggravate your mother when you are a teenager?
Dirt Bag – HA.
Awesome! This reminds me of whose on first comedy skit!! Lol!!
Dirtbag. Haha!!! And I like how I can actually hear you saying “LUUU-CEEEE” in my head. And picturing your face while reading is funny, too. Aaaaaand now I’ve made it awkward. 😛
