What we have here is a failure to communicate

It's been a while since we had a good Esso episode around here. But last night I took Angus to the chiropractor and on the way home he asked what we were having for dinner. I had been out all day and I was feeling lazy, so I didn't actually want to make the pizza that I had bought the pizza toppings for, but I knew we had naan bread in the freezer that I could use for pizza crust. So I said "naan pizzas". He said "so what are we having?" I looked at him quizzically and said "what did I just say?" and he said "well if it's not pizza, what is it?" Then we picked up Eve at my Mom's and had the same conversation, until I finally spelled it out: "NOT n-o-n pizzas, n-a-a-n pizzas!"

They liked them. Eve now calls them anti-pizzas.

Then in the middle of the night, my husband having wandered his restless legs off somewhere else already, Angus came in and said he'd had a really bad nightmare and crawled in with me. Matt, having heard someone up and about, came in to check and I whispered "he had a bad dream". Matt said "oh, I'm sorry" and patted him on the shoulder and said "do you have your fuzzy?" We both looked at him oddly, but it was dark so he couldn't see us, and he said "do you want me to go get your fuzzy?" and I said "are you high? it's ANGUS." And Matt looked confused and patted the rest of Angus and shook his head and wandered away again.

This family is fun.

Naan pizza sounds not bad. I just read a recipe for butter chicken pizza and I'm thinking using naan as the crust is a brilliant idea.

Anti-pizzas. I like that.

Any story that involves most of the family up in the middle of the night makes me shudder.

Unquestionably believe that which you said. Your favorite reason seemed to be on the internet
the easiest thing to be aware of. I say to you, I certainly get annoyed while people think about worries that they just don't know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
