- Wait: Which I honestly think he doesn’t even realize he says. It is a reflex reaction in the same way you might get shushed by your husband during a key instant replay in a football game.
- In a minute: Which translates to meaning that he’s doing something, actually heard me and simply trying to stall.
- B.R.T: Short for be right there. Welcome to 2010. Add 3 to 5 minutes to determine the actual time of his arrival. I’m always prepared to ask again…A.S.A.P (Also 2010)
- I AM: His canned reply when I ask him if he’s getting dressed. It’s just the best to hear this response while I peak into his room to see that he’s STILL sitting there in his little boxer briefs
- Later: Which means “never”. I drop it here, ’cause I’m exhausted at this point.
- I Did Already: Popular one when it comes to taking a shower or any type of grooming or cleaning, but is usually UNTRUE or only partially true. Inspection is always required at this point.
- I Will: Which translates to I won’t, unless seriously nagged. And of course this usually results in a ‘tude from said child.
- I Forgot: Which means I have not nagged enough and have failed in my role as a Jewish mother.
- After this Game: Which means he’s in an Xbox-induced fog, did not really hear what it was I was asking him to do, and will more than likely result in me having to ask again. Tears, (his) usually appear in this one.
- I Can’t: Which really means he’s not interested. I feel for his future wife on this one.
- If I Do it Can We Go to Gamestop?: No. Nice try though.
- I Know: Yeah and…..?? This one always stumps me for a few minutes. What does this mean? I know and you’ll do it in a minute? I know and I can’t? I know and B.R.T? Yelling is usually involved here.
and finally one which I would love to hear, but haven’t:
