In reading through my posts, I found a common theme- Evan. I rarely just talk about Colin. It isn’t because he’s not as fun or he doesn’t give us anything to talk about. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. Our stories about Colin are so hysterical, they’re just sometimes inappropriate to talk about. Things come out of his mouth and it’s not because he’s trying to be funny or shock people, he just doesn’t have that filter. It’s quite funny.
Evan, Colin and I walked down to the grocery store for Popsicles one Sunday and met up with all the kids on our street, so we invited them to join us. All told, our posse consisted of seven boys, one girl, and myself. It was as if this was the first girl Colin had seen. He stared at her for a long time.
“You got a bagina?” he asked this horrified 10-year-old girl. He wasn’t trying to be funny. Colin genuinely wanted to know.
“You’re crazy!” she said hoping no one heard his question.
He looked at me as if to say, “Well, does she?”
One other time we were grocery shopping and he was in the cart facing oncoming grocery shoppers. Yes, I know, that’s frowned upon. We came upon 2 teenage lovebirds who were buying chips, probably for a movie so they could make out (I’m so 1980).
As we approached them Colin yells,”Hey, you, I don’t like your girlfriend.”
In case any of you are not aware, that’s one of the latest Avril Lavigne songs. (I only know that because I’m a closet fan). Of course they laughed, and so did I. I did explain to Colin that he shouldn’t say such things. But I have to admit, I thought his timing was very clever.
And wouldn’t you know it, now that I’m trying to think of all the funny things he’s done and said, I can’t remember any more. I’ll have to jot them down for his wedding reception. I’ll definitely be telling the bagina story!
