Ooh, That Smarts

Brother the elder: Check out that Smart Car!

Brother the younger: What smart car? Where?

Brother the elder: Over there! Smart Car! S.M.R.T.

Full 30 second pause.

Brother the elder: I mean S.M.A.R.T.



Neither of them fully appreciated the oxymoronic value of their exchange- or the grin causing joy it brought me.


  1. That reminds me of Homer episode he is dancing around saying "I am so smart, SMRT, I mean SMART." Haha, anyway...

  2. SURE ya did. Mhmm. Yup. We believe you. Of COURSE you did that on purpose.

    : )

  3. Reminds me of the question one of my sister's students asked her "Miss H, can you tell me what 'clarify' means"? He was dead serious and she was hysterical.
