The Random Writings of Rachel: Angelisms, Part 13

Angelisms, Part 13

I bought him this shirt because I knew it was perfect for him. It's his new favorite shirt and he thinks the cat on the shirt vaguely resembles our cat Morphine, which makes him love it even more.

Scene: Games are for kids, right? Or for Angel, when he gets the idea to try jump roping with a little added weight. Also, he wants this to be the new "challenge" that goes around and everyone does it. Not sure why. I'm not even sure it's entirely safe.




..........................................................

Scene: We're sitting around on the couch, watching X-Files with Dad and the rest of the family. All of a sudden:

Angel: "Rebekah, did you hear who Taylor Swift is dating now?"
*Pause, as everyone looks at Angel like...huh? We're not exactly a celebrity gossip kind of family.*
Rebekah: "Uh, no."
Angel: "Tom Hiddleston!!"
Rebekah: "Okay."
Angel: "He's Loki!"
Rebekah: "Yeah, I know."
Rachel: "Angel, this is probably the weirdest topic you could have possibly brought up right now."

........................................................

Scene: We're both on our computers. I'm blogging...not sure what Angel's doing, till he starts narrating what he's typing into the search bar of Youtube.

Angel: *typing and speaking* "Why I don't love my white wife anymore."
*A bunch of marriage counseling-style Youtube videos popped up in the search results.
Angel: "Huh. There's all this serious stuff. I thought it was going to be something funny."
Rachel: ????

.........................................................

Scene: At the house of some friends from China. The host is strongly pressuring us to try a drink from his 1,000 RM (approx. $250 USD) bottle of baijiu (Chinese liquor). We've been asked repeatedly in spite of refusals and this is what ensues:

Rachel: 我一点酒都不喝。 (A fairly strong way to say I don't drink at all, not even a little, and that's what finally got me off the hook.)
Angel: "Okay, okay, I'll try a little." (He was a bit curious about the expensive baijiu.)
*Our host poured him out a thimbleful in the tiniest glass I've ever seen...and we all laughed hysterically while watching Angel try it. It took him the rest of the meal to finish the thimble. He was drinking a lot of Coca-Cola to try to wash it down. It's pretty fierce stuff, I guess. And now I think Angel is forever cured of any curiosity about baijiu. Some kids have to learn the hard way.

  9. The video is awesome! Did he actually do it with you on his shoulders? I am usually the "angel" in our family. Always with the random thoughts and things just fall out of my mouth before I can think them through! LOL

  13. Ha! I love it! I need to start writing down some of the things my husband says. He thinks he's pretty funny (okay, he is sometimes!).

  14. Ahh Angel is so funny!! I'm sure life with him is so fun. One of my favorite things about my husband is when he purposefully butchers Spanish (I'm fluent) just because he knows it will bother me. Keeps us laughing!

  17. Haha, too funny! My husband has a habit of singing the wrong words to songs or making words up in conversation because he knows it drives me crazy. I always correct him before I realize he's just pulling my leg. ;)

  21. I love these posts! I laughed so hard at the Taylor Swift conversation. That sounds like something James would do, bring up a completely random topic about something I don't care about.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Haha this is so funny! Sounds like he always keeps things entertaining! :)

  23. Oh, the world wide phenomenon of people caring who Taylor swift dates. Hahaa. And I thought they broke up? 😏😏😏

  24. I can jump rope by myself, but I haven't done it while other people are holding the ropes since I was a kid. I feel like that would be kind of hard. And add holding a PERSON to it... wow! Go Angel!

    Also, his experience with baijiu sounds like how we felt the first time (well really, only time) we tried whiskey. I had it for a recipe so I thought I'd try a sip. And by "sip" I mean that I got a drop on my tongue and then felt like my sinuses were on fire. Christopher had much the same response. Needless to say, we haven't felt the desire to try it ever again. ;)
