A little quiz... Q: What could possibly cause two kids who normally bicker to drive in total silence for almost two whole hours? A: Nintendo DS.
The Nintendo DS is my best friend today. I drove back from Jay's hometown with the kids in our car that does not have the DVD player. I made sure both Nintendo DS were fully charged and we were on our way.
It was almost as if I was alone in the car- quite blissful if I do say so myself-not a peep out of the kids for about two hours until Jack broke the silence with this...
Jack: Mom, can I tell you something?
Jack: Um, the character on my Transformers DS game said a bad word in their language.
Me: Really? What did he say?
Jack: He said the other Transformer had a defective sensor- that means idiot in their language.
Megan(giggling): Defective sensor???
Jack: Uh huh. That means idiot.
Megan: No it doesn't. It just means the sensor doesn't work anymore.
...and back to silence.
