In addition to several adults we spent time with during our trip to England, we also got in some QT with my cousin’s 6-year-old son, Alistair.
One of the funniest kids I know, seriously.
The one-liners kept coming all week and there’s so much that made us laugh..I don’t know where to start.
You’ve already heard his feelings about nudity.
He doesn’t always say “brilliant,” but there are loads of other (see what I did there?) British phrases he throws into conversation.
“Can I have a go on your iPod when we get home?”
“Mummy, can we go straightaway?”
“Shall I go get the game?”
He loved Ashley from the second we got there, so much so that I asked if she was his girlfriend. Allyson said “Isn’t Sloane your girlfriend?” Sloane, of course, being a girl at his school.
Alistair: “She was.”
Allyson: “Is she not still your girlfriend?”
Allyson: “Why not?”
Alistair: “She smacked me in the face and I broke up.”
The child is also a fantastic photographer, he really can capture the moment, like he did when he caught this beautiful moment:
And other gems like these:
I haven’t even mentioned the faces he does. This is a picture of my personal favorite, the Port Authority Face – meaning the face you get when you ask a question at the Port Authority.
And then there was Abbey Road. This kid can take direction very well. We made him do a number of different poses, from a gargoyle to a frog. The best one, I think, is the one down below. The sphinx. Couldn’t have done it better myself. Actually, I probably couldn’t have even done it at all.
We hung out with some other kids while we were there, too, including two middle-school-aged Brits that we taught how to say “hamburger” and “water” like we do here in the U.S.ofA. But Alistair takes the cake.
