The other day, Matthew was playing a video game where cartoon characters are racing each other in cars when we heard him say, “They are driving like idiots.”
Andrea started laughing, but I paused trying to figure out where I had heard that before, right down to the inflection in his voice. Andrea asked me where he might have heard it and it dawned on me. So I turned to Andrea and acted out a typical car ride for us:
“daddy, why are you yelling at those other cars?”
“They are driving like idiots.”
I really need to watch what I say in front of the kids.
