Ok, so this is an actual conversation I just had with my 15 year old.

Me:  I’m going to hit you with my book.**
Her:  Please don’t.  It’s really thick.  I’m afraid it will cause actual brain damage — Wait!  Who’s book is thicker?  *grabs her book and holds it up against mine*  Yours is thicker.  Just by a little bit though.

Not sure if she’s afraid or disappointed she can’t take me in a book fight…
** No teenagers were actually hit with a book.
CONTEXT:  After posting this yesterday it was pointed out that, without context, this may not come across as funny.  So, I give you — context!  We are huge fans of Doctor Who in our house.  We are even bigger fans of books.  A friend sent me the below image.  It’s from the Doctor Who episode that started a running joke in our house.  We have never actually hit each other with books (at least not on purpose.  Weeelll…. at least not hard enough to hurt.  Only in fun and only while giggling).

  1. Oh…memories of my life with my teenagers…now I am living in a household of needy “teenage” dogs…I am sure there is a reason for this torture again…and you will read about it on my blog…rofl

  2. Hahaha, actually it made me feel a bit bad. 🙂
    I understand reality is different. I had some traumatic experience in childhood and that’s the reason.
    I wish you a wonderful weekend.

    1. I’m sorry. 🙁 I’d never actually hit her with anything. She and I are really close and have an odd sense of humor sometimes. We have a habit of “threatening” to hit each other with our books (it’s not scary when your both giggling). We usually just laugh and keep teasing each other about whatever it is we’re reading. This was so funny to us because she’d changed the normal back and forth. I hate that it upset you. 🙁

      1. Hahaha, yes things appear so different in text sometimes 🙂
        No qualms Jess. Cheers 🙂

        1. I’m glad you pointed that out to me. I added some context to the end, I hope it keeps anyone else from being upset by it.

          1. Hope it does Jess, thanks 🙂

  3. Haha! Nothing like a quiet family game of Rock, Hardback, Scissors 🙂 My kids are already showing good signs of weird humour so this might be me in ten years…

    1. Lol! I hope so. It makes life a lot more fun! 🙂 My youngest was fluent in sarcasm by the age of 3. There aren’t a whole lot of completely serious conversations that take place around here.

  4. No brain damage there. She was quick with a comeback and it fit the discussion. It’s great to have family traditions involving humor.

    1. No, definitely not. She’s one of those super smart kids that ask for extra math homework. No idea where she got that from lol

    1. Man, I don’t like typing on a tablet. My fingers don’t fit. I meant, Awesome, Jess!

      1. LOL! I hadn’t even realized that Awesome was spelled wrong until you pointed it out.

  5. This is hilarious! I love me some Doctor Who so I’m glad to see his quite used wisely 😉

    1. My youngest is having a Doctor Who themed birthday party this year. 🙂

      1. I am extremely jealous of your youngest daughter! My 26th birthday is in November, and as long as I actually have time to celebrate my birthday I’m thinking a Doctor Who themed party might be kind of fun! 😀
