I'm Staying Lost

This is my small humble attempt to pay tribute to the experience that is "Lost." I'll ponder why I like it, WTF moments, go off on tangents, or just plain have fun! Come get lost with me!

My crazy "Lost" boys!

If you like podcasts about Lost, you have to check out this one! Cliff, Stephanie and Rachel are fun to listen to and have interesting points of view.

Now, about my boys! First, let me say that everything I'm telling you they said came from their own little crazy mouths. I did not prompt them - I just laughed! Second, I'm not sure what movies or TV shows they are watching at Dad's house. "Lost", "24" - maybe. You be the judge.

We were playing pirates with their little Lego-type set and my four year old said these gems:

(pirate carrying small treasure chest) "I'm going to school and this is my lunch." Well, pirates have to learn somewhere. Then we discussed what pirates eat for lunch. I really didn't know what they ate.

(a dark-haired pirate to blond pirate) "Sorry for shooting you!" Obviously, Pirate School stresses manners!

(blond pirate back to dark-haired pirate) "Are you gay?" This was, accoring to same four-year-old, originally said by his uncle. I did not ask about the circumstances! Maybe they did see "Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl." They both still say they never did.

My six year old contributed this:

"I'm getting drunk! Where's my beer?" (puts pirate down in the cargo hold briefly then brings him back to the kitchen area, makes burping sound) "I think I'm drunk now!" (puts pirate up in crow's nest and pushes him down) Now, their Dad doesn't drink, neither do I. Note to self: talk to uncle! I really think this is how Johnny thinks pirates act. Obviously, his pirate did not go to Pirate School! It's not good manners to demand beer, then go up to the crow's nest while you are impaired - you might fall and sqaush someone!
