A certain family member has a peculiar way of expressing herself!

Henry: “I like blue. It tastes good.” Elise: “No, don’t eat glue!”
“I took a nap and now it’s almost bedtime. Oh no!”
“I guess I’ll have to give a toast at your wedding. I’m okay with that. Not looking forward to the dress. I don’t want to show too much skin. No bows!”

“The C and A are the hardest on YMCA.”
“Morning Mom. My thing started, so buckle up.”
“I’m going to see how long I can stay up. That is…if I don’t fall asleep. I also don’t want to lose touch with reality if I stay up too long.”
Me: Elise, what is the matter?
Elise: I’m concerned about if I say mean things in my sleep.
Me: I haven’t heard you say anything mean.
Elise: Well, I know I’m super competitive in my subconscious.
“Oh yeah i forgot to tell you guys! Im immune to when water drips down to your elbow. It doesn’t bother me anymore! Yay! ”
Henry: Whenever I eat watermelon it makes my mouth hurt.
Elise: Yeah that happens to me too, but I suck it up.

Elise: A spider killer. Has siblings. And not too old.
“Can you see my eye sockets? Sometimes I look in the mirror and YAY! I can see my eye sockets!”
“Yep, last day being a teenager. It’s gets harder and harder being a teenager through the generations.”
“Well, last night of being a teenager. Glad to have those wretched teenage years behind me. Don’t forget somebody gets to do my chores tomorrow!”

“Oh shoot, I buried it.”
“I never want to go spelunking. Five out of seven divers die doing it. No thanks!”

“I think we like the smell of food because of our primordial instincts.”
“If I were to be a werewolf, I would be the best at shredding people apart because of my intense jaw strength “
“Are there going to be a bunch of frozen animal corpses because of the cold weather?”
At one point Henry was talking to Elise and he said, “why are you not responding?”
Elise said, “I’m lost in my own thoughts.”
“Dad- I’m just worried about mom so I’m trying to give her space. I think shes worried about Parker.”
Henry- yeah well moms worried about your drinking problem
Elise- well I’m worried about your drinking problem I wish you never even started ”
“I’m thinking of a bad word and it starts with the letter F.”

Me: “I only the point the sharp knives down.”
Elise: “You mean the deadly ones.”
“Let’s hope we never encounter a Jaguar. They can out swim, run and climb a human.”
Hyrum: What are beauty standards?
Elise: You don’t know what beauty standards are? I know less than you, but I know what they are.
Elise was telling Dad and I how she got to watch a movie during assemblies at school. “All the losers had to go to the assembly.”
What she doesn’t know is, I kinda set that up. She hated going to assemblies. So I asked the school to give her an alternative.
Bless her heart! She didn’t have to hang out with the losers!
