B-A-N-A-N-A-S. (Life With Unicorns)

So here is the exchange I had this morning, as I got ready for work and he got a 2-hour school delay because Wisconsin suddenly doesn't know how to handle 3" of snow.

He wanted to watch Go, Diego, Go, the "Gorilla Fun" episode.

Mr Bunches: Watch "Go Diego" Gorilla Fun?

Me: Sure. But first you have to tell me what a gorilla says.

Mr Bunches: *mimicks gorilla pounding chest* Oo oo ah ah

Me: Very good.  And what does a gorilla eat?

Mr Bunches: roots and leaves.

Me: *thinks* I was looking for "bananas."

But of course, he's right.  Of course he's right. In fact, gorillas are as likely to shred a banana tree to eat the interior as they are to eat the bananas, something I only learned once I looked it up because I was going to fact-check Mr Bunches.

Perhaps I should be watching more Go, Diego, Go!

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT here is a picture I posted to my Twitter feed the other day of Mr F planking.


See why you should follow me? Imagine how much better that was if you saw it live.

So the gist of this is you were outwitted by a six-year-old?

If I ever get on twitter, I will certainly follow you.
Isn't it great when kids have new info for you?

I just want to know what the gorilla is thinking. I mean, not only is it choosing to break open a tree instead of having a banana, but it's like giving a man a fish.
What's the gorilla gonna eat after it kills all the trees?

Yeah, I'm told Gorilla's are gassy too. Did he know that? Thank you. See, being an adult is awesome.

I wish I could double follow you. Wait, can I do that? I totally will if I can.
