Knight in Shining...Black Hawk?

'Hey, Peter!'

'I'm not Peter, I am a knight.'

'I see. Well, sorry, Sir Peter. Where's your horse?'

'I don't have a horse. I have a helicopter.'

'Of course you do.'

It is not so much the words, but how they are said. The way Peter justs shakes his head and looks at you like you're dumber than Bush for thinking that a knight might ride anything other than the UH-60 Black Hawk medium-lift assault helicopter. Sorry for thinking like a normal human, Sir weirdo.

I am now quite certain that IKEA has secretly launched some kind of subliminal ad campaign targeting pregnant women. I have heard sex is a good substitute for chocolate - or is it the other way around? It doesn't matter. The point is, IKEA is obviously a good substitute for seeing your toes, since Angie ended up there again today, along with Peter, David, Grams and Opa.

Peter stayed in the playcenter, but not for long. The loud speaker announced to all shoppers that little Peter would like to be picked up because he was hungry. Thanks, Peter, for pointing out to everyone how little we feed you.

I came home from work to a pile of IKEA boxes blocking the door. Angie blah-blah'd about her day, including the story about how Peter devoured an entire hot dog at IKEA after being picked up from the playcenter. Only, Angie explained it to me that Peter must have been 'hungry as a horse'. Hungry as a horse? I'm sorry, was Peter craving a carrot? I think she probably meant 'so hungry, he could eat a horse'. I never found out for sure, though, since I got 'the look' and chose self-preservation over poking fun. I just pray she never finds this site.
Ladder Talk:
1) What was the best part of your day?
Peter: When I played computer - Max and Dora and Diego and I think that was it.
David: When I play that one new game.

2) What was the worst part of your day?
Peter: When David said..., um... he said I was 'super super super super super BAD'.
David: When I owa and the zebra owa, too.

3) What would you like to do tomorrow?
Peter: To go to Grams and Opa.
David: When I play computer mit Peter.
