Doug and I talk in pop culture speak. It confuses the children, amuses us and allows us to say a lot with only a few words.
“Time to make the donuts.” – Time to go, it’s ready, etc.
“He chose po-or-ly.” – Someone did something really stupid.
“Have fun stormin’ the castle.” – I’m glad I’m not participating in whatever you are going to do.
“Inconceivable.” – Even though I knew what would happen, I’m still perturbed that it did.
“Turn it up to eleven.” – Give it everything you’ve got and then some.
“flux capacitor” – Used in place of accurate technical jargon.
“Finish your TPS reports.” – Do the stupid stuff you have to do.
“Wanna take a baaaath?” – Want to fool around?
Ben reminded me of another:
“I do not think it means what you think it means.” – Moron.
Barry reminded me that all of our children know to run when we start humming the Jaws theme.
Jay – If we used Napoleon Dynamite quotes, we couldn’t confuse the children.
