Q: Whats that Momma? Whats that? (pointing)
Me: That is a mouse.
Q: No its not, no its not (shaking his head)! (see earlier post)
Me: Yes it is. It is a mouse -- the whole book is about mice -- it is a mouse.
Q: No its not, its a moose.
Me: A moose? No, its is mouse.
Q: No its not (yelling adamantly) its a moose! A moose!
Me: What makes you think this is a moose?
Q: Its a moose. A moose. 'Cause Daddy said it was. Its a moose.
Me: Its a mouse. (At this point I tried to turn the page because I knew I was losing this battle, but he refused to allow me to turn the page and instead pointed at the mouse again.)
Q: Momma, whats that? (pointing at the same controversial mouse)
Me: Quentin, it is a mouse, a mouse, a mouse.
Q: No its not Momma -- its a moose. (He was trying to get me to admit it was indeed a moose.)
Later he declared that a particular star in his book "was not working".
Quenspeak lesson of the day:
No Fad! No Fad! = No Fair! No Fair!
It took me five minutes to figure out his protestations.
Then when I asked him if he meant "No Fair?" he said "Oh yeah, No Fair! No Fair!". I am sure he is getting this one from the kids in his class.

It's the Benny's Awin -- I know you wondered what happened to them right? I sure did. Especially after their hit "We Are All Sterile (because our pants are too tight -- Oh yeah!)" did so well. Not sure but I am pretty sure the little squirlly guy in the middle is a professional jockey. The only straight one -- the only one without the "neckerchief" is now in prison and the rest all formed a roller disco troup called "The Satins" that only wore those satin jackets and shorts shorts. I do not know what else happened to them. Just kidding.
The Cool Candys looks like Sweden's poster of their most wanted child molesters -- hence the name. The only thing I know for sure is that the guy on the bottom left may have the SWEETEST comb-over I have EVER SEEN. He scares me the most too. The guy on the back row far right could be Charlie Manson's twin and the fellow next to him with the goatee has a hairdo like my Aunt had in the 7o's. All in all -- a bunch of creepy dudes. However you can tell that the guy in the back far left was by far the "stallion" of the group -- he had all of the groupies (all 7 of them) and the guy next to him with the sideburns from hell -- never got over it.
It totally looks like she is slipping him some digits!
