Overheard 2011 Runners up Volume 1

It's that time of year again.  We've sent out our Christmas letter with the best of the best funny or surprising boy quotes in it.  As in past years, there was more there than we could fit.  Here are some that were nearly good enough to make the cut.

Explaining that his belly stopped hurting:
T: It said, “Oh!  I guess the kid doesn’t like this.”  And it turned back easy.

When the subject of marriage came up (extended version, longer than in the Christmas letter)
T: I’m probably going to live with some dudes when I grow up.
J: Which dudes?
C: Probably Rowan.
T: Rowan has a cut-off toe.

On a schedule conflict between a friend’s birthday party and the Harvard-Yale game:
P: I think a friend’s party is more important than a football game.
C: But this isn’t just a football game.  It’s a traditional Ivy League rivalry.  It’s been going on since the beginning of college football, and this is like the 143rd time.

I get a huge kick out of Charlie and Teddy quotes. Thanks for posting more.

Awesome! Thanks for posting. I am just stunned that a grandson of Dave Hennessey could feel that way about a football game.
