jeremy says weird things

J and I were just watching a news story about a wild moose wandering around town. While talking about it Jeremy said "something something something meese". Yes. Meese. As in, more than one moose is meese. Now I don't really mean to embarrass him but I was laughing so hard that I just had to share this. I kept asking him, "are you joking? Do you really think the plural of moose is meese?" He was laughing too, but he really does think the plural of moose is meese. If you are confused at this point, let me just tell you the plural of moose is MOOSE. Not meese, not mooses, just moose. It's one of the few words in the english language that doesn't change in plural form. He said his dad taught him that so either Mike needs to read this or else he was playing one of those mean parenting tricks where you teach the kid the wrong word because it's funny, and then he never corrected him.

Jeremy also says "squoozed"--I'm not even sure how you would spell that. For the past tense of squeeze, instead of saying squeezed, he says squoozed. And what's funny about that is that if you are doing it for the past tense, than it should just be squooze, if it really were a word. But he adds the unnecessary "ed" and says "squoozed". And what's even funnier is that I've heard several other people say it too. Geesh.

Also, instead of saying "let's pants him" he says, "let's depants him". Which I think is very weird, because I say pants. But I looked that one up and I think he might be right. I'll put up a few polls and see what people think about all this.

And if anyone out there is feeling like a bad person, here's proof that I'm worse.
I put Tyler's hair in a pony tail. And liked it. And took several pictures of it. And told him he looked pretty. And left it in all night. And I want to do it again!

I was hoping I'd see an entry from you after last nights phone call. Did you get a new toaster? :)
I seriously thought that picture of Tyler was Alexis, before I read the commentary on it. :) How funny! Was Jeremy furious with you?
Not only for teasing him, but for dressing his manly little son up like a little girl? :)
Have you ever heard of Brian Regan? Well, I believe he has it right. The plural for Moose is "Moosen." :) Or, is it "Meesen"? (Just like the plural for box is "Boxen.") :)
Anyhow, hope you are feeling better. (I dealt with more throw up last night.) Crossing my fingers that it's over now. Carson ate a good breakfast. Talk to you later.

Oh wow. I thought that Tyler was Alexis. I have nothing to say except that I am laughing out loud.

does he say "funnier" which isn't a word, or is that just you?

I agree...de-pants...and you all should know after our visit that I AM ALWAYS RIGHT when it comes to grammatical english.
I think that last sentence shows that I have finally passed over into Hegji-dom.

That was a fantastic post. Wow, meese, we would use that one jokingly quite often. By the way I was raised by a mother who says "squoze" which I also used till my friends totally made fun of me and a proved to me it wasn't a word in high school, so I quickly switched over to squeezed. Depants I must say sounds SOOO rediculous to me, but, it does make more sense if you actually thing about it. And it isnt' unusual at all for men with hair the length of Tylers to put it up in a ponytail. Have a good one!

I just thought I'd let you know that Mason looked at the picture of Tyler with his hair in a pony tail and called him a girl! I thought the picture was cute, but I must admit, I thought it was Alexis at first!

Ha ha! You know, Alex says those weird things too. Meese, really. Sometimes I think he and Jeremy have had a bad affect on each other....
