Yee Haw and a Corn Dog!
Note: I googled a "goofy cowboy pic" and Gawl Durn It! I found one!
Doughie was running around the house pretending to ride a horse and was yelling, "Yee Haw! And a Corn Dog!" I stopped her and asked her what she said, because I wasn't sure I had heard correctly. She said, "You know, Yee haw! And a Corn Dog!"
I said, "What does that mean?"
She said in a superior manner, that she could have only learned from her father, "You know, I was talking Texas."
Me, "Talking Texas? What does that mean."
Again, with a look of unhumble condescension, "You know...that is how people from the country of Texas talk. They say "Yee haw" ALLLLLL the time!"
Me, with an odd gleam and smirk on my face, "REALLLLY? What else do people from the country of Texas say?"
Doughie, "You know...things like "Gawl Durn it!" and "Gee Howdy!" Things like that"
Me, "Please...tell me more...."
Doughie, "No...that is enough for now. You need to talk to somebody from Texas and learn for yourself."
At this time, I went running to the notepad on my fridge and wrote every "Yee haw" and "Corn dog" down snickering the whole time! Doughie watched, shaking her head, as if to say, "Poor ignorant thing..."
Have you kids said anything crazy? PLEASE SHARE!!
