Quirky Is As Quirky Does

Thanks Forrest for the title inspiration!

My ten-year-old is gearing up his wish list for Christmas. Oh yeah, no problem focusing there. No problem writing that clearly and legibly, always keeping those letters in-between the lines.


So of course, I am the lovely recipient of the verbal barrage.

"Mom! I know what I want for Christmas. I want (insert anything over 300 dollars here)."


For his birthday, that was just in October, he wanted one of two things: An iPod touch or a wheel-chair.

Yes, you read that correctly.

My son wants a wheel-chair.

Stranger than strange.

I asked him WHY?

He just replied he thought it would be cool to ride around in.


I guess.

So once again, amongst all the electronic gadgets and Lego kits and motorized scooters or bikes ("whatever one YOU like best Mom" Mmm-hmm.), he is also including a wheel-chair at the very top of his list.


It seems uncomfortably funny for me to chuckle, because heaven forbid he ever NEED a wheel-chair.

But still I chuckle.

Not a hearty laugh.

But a chuckle.

Tee hee?


  1. You're back!!!!! How did I not know this? YAY! Clearly when it comes to "quirky" your son is the apple that did not fall far from the quirkster tree. :)

  2. Your son is a funny guy! I've missed you, Sweetheart!

  3. Now I know just what to ask Santa for... because it's only a matter of time before I go crashing down again. Thanks for the idea, Quirks!
