Yesterday Brandi wanted me to make that chicken dish I made about a month ago. She couldn't remember what it was called but she thought it was chicken alfredo. I could not ever remember making chicken alfredo.
"It's in that healthy food cook book mom. And if it isn't, well you said it was healthy anyway."
I couldn't find chicken alfredo in the cookbook and I was still pulling a blank so I pulled out the weekly menues for the past couple of months. Nothing that even sounded like it could be what she wanted. Until-
Chicken Scallapini? could that be it?
Then this morning I was typing up some notes for tonight's midterm. The radio was on in the background and Brandi was making some blueberry muffins. You Belong With Me by Talor Swift came on the radio. I was ignoring it because it is not my favorite song. Brandi said, "They sure play this song a lot." and then started singing it in that silly make fun of the song voice that she and I use when this song comes on.
Then the second verse starts:
Walkin the streets with you in your worn out jeans
But because Taylor Swift doesn't always enunciate her words but slurs them together, Brandi doesn't understand what she says. So right after Taylor sings the above line Brandi says:
"Mom, what are one eyed jeans?"
I laughed for 5 minutes!
