More Stuff Anna Says

Our daughter has a great sense of humor, and says some really funny things. We try to write them down as soon as she says them. We often share them on Facebook and if they’re brief enough I post them to Twitter too. Here are some more of the funniest ones…

Julia was tossing her in the pool one evening and told her that she could only do it while in the pool. Anna asked “Why?” Julia said “If I tried to do it out of the pool, it would kill me.” Anna’s response? “It wouldn’t kill you, Mom, because then you wouldn’t be alive!”

Once when I asked her what she was thinking, she said “If you could read my mind, you’d know.”

Another time, while hanging upside down off the couch: “It’s hard to think when your brain’s upside down.”

While “training” one of her plush elephant toys: “It’s hard to keep an elephant on schedule.”

Back in the pool— this time doing flips: “I did a double. Now I did a triple! Now a quadriple!”

On her jewelry choices: “I’m wearing two bracelets, one for each wrist, but I’m wearing one necklace because I only have one neck.”

Playing on her iPad: “I don’t like level three! I’m skipping level three from now on!”  “All level threes?” I asked. “Yes!”

Once she tried to say either “it slipped my mind” or “I lost track of time,” but it came out as “I lost my mind.”

One day while throwing out grape stems for the birds to collect and build nests: “I’ll just toss it out here for whoever gets it first. And no, I didn’t name one of them ‘Whoever Gets It First.'”

At Princess Night with the Eugene Emeralds: “They should have a Princess Night every week!”

Later that night, when it was time to leave: “But, Mom, I want to stay and party!”

And the next morning:”I slept in because I was out partying last night past my bedtime.”

This next one came up while watching the original Toy Story. Right after the scene when Sid performs the first “double brain transplant” by switching the doll’s head with the pteranodon’s head, Anna looks over and says “That’s not how you do a real brain transplant.”

Julia related this one on Facebook: “Anna has created a new word … ‘Talentor’—someone who has many talents. (And she is apparently the first example of the word).”

Another Anna word: seatbeltilization n. The act of using a seat belt.

Just the other night I was talking to her from the next room. She didn’t respond, so I asked”Anna can you hear a word I’m saying?” Her answer? “No.”

And finally a poem that starts with a story …

I said a phrase to Anna today that I haven’t said in months, because she got tired of it. “That’s the plan, Ann … a.” It slipped out and as soon as I said it, I apologized. “That’s okay,” she replied. “I’m not mad, Dad. Or sad, Dad.” “Are you glad?” I asked. “I am glad.”She paused and smiled. “Dad.”
