My brother, like most 15 year olds, has a number of 'catch phrases' that I've heard often. Most of them don't even click in my head, but.......
he has (had?) a particular one that drove me crazy.
"Hey, Amy, hey!"
"Hey, Mom, hey!"
One 'hey' isn't enough? and is a 'hey' really necessary at all?
4 weeks ago, I bet him $5.00 that he couldn't NOT say 'hey' for the whole Sunday.
He tried....and said 'Hey, Amy, hey!' 20 minutes after he had gotten up. LOL
So, every Sunday, that was our running bet....and for three Sundays, he tried....and forgot the deal and ended up saying 'Hey!'.....
Until this Sunday. He won his $5.00. It was worth it to me because I feel like I helped the grammar skills just a teeny bit. It was worth it to him, because he's all about the money and $5.00 is $5.00. When I handed it to him, I gave him 5 ones.
Tyler: Coolness....five ones....
Me: Try not to spend it all on the same stripper.
Tyler: Aw, mannnnnnnn
But seriously, let's hope he spends it on Doritos and Coke from the vending machines, okay?!
