Watch your language!

Elder Son was reading in bed. I asked him to turn on his bedside lamp so I could shut off his room light.

He: Could you do it? I'm all comfortable.

Me: (long belch)

He: Mother!

Me: What? Isn't that teenage boy talk for "Yes"?

He: No! (then, attempting a snooty British accent) Around here, we speak the Queen's English!

I like speaking about 'woman-stuff'...that's a language that sends them running off in fear!
