Grandkids Say the Darndest Things, Eighth Edition

By December 29, 2012

It's been a while since we've served up some smiles, GSTDT style. Let's ward away the post-holiday blues with some cute stories.

A friend's preschool son has a talent for unique expressions. As he was enjoying a warm drink, he stated, "This hot chocolate is so good it could melt my small intestine." Later he requested the song, "It's a Small World," saying, "It really cheers my ears up."

A family was preparing for a visit from Grandpa by stocking up on Diet Dr. Pepper. One of the grandkids commented, "I like it too. It runs in the family." Her brother agreed. "It's like rum, if we were pirates."

Another child wrote a note to her father, "Out of all my four fathers, you're my favorite." Her mother, who only knew about one father, discovered that in school the students had been studying their "forefathers."

A friend who is a Baptist minister and single was being grilled by family members about a recent date. His sister's 9-year-old stepson stepped into the fray, admonishing the group to back off, then saying, "There are only two questions that matter: First, is she a Christian? And second, is she hot?"

Do you have a funny story? Leave a comment below, or email me. And tune in for the next edition of GSTDT!

Hilarious! I loved the child’s response to the pastor’s dating experience. “Out of the mouths of babes.” Yes, less food, more laughter!
