Effusive Eli:

All these conversations took place today before 3:00

While talking about the death of Michael Jackson today Eli had some questions:
Eli: how did Michael Jackson die?
Becca: Well, he made some bad choices and took bad drugs.
E: not the good kind a doctor gives you.
B: Nope just bad ones.
E: were they the bad kind that make you have big muscles and look scary (meaning steroids)
B: no they weren't that kind.
E: I can't wait until Carrot Top dies.

I never blogged about Vegas but we stayed at the Luxor where Carrot Top performs. The posters that were EVERYWHERE freaked Eli out. Stewart told him how Carrot Top looks so freaky because he takes steroids.

Eli is obsessed with Legos.

E: I can't wait until I'm an adult.
B: Oh really why?
E: weeeell you might not like this when I tell you.
B: you can tell me.
E: well when I'm an adult and you die I'm going to buy the Lego Deathstar.
B: you don't have to wait until I'm dead to buy it. I'm just not going to buy it for you. You can buy it whenever you have enough money.
E: OH!

Eli: I just can't believe that Michael Jackson is dead! When I grow up I'm going to be his number one fan. Then I'll go see him.
Becca: you can't see him he's dead.
E: well I CAN dig up his body!

Those are so funny. You should have wrote the story he said about me!

You obviously havent done your job teaching Eli about zombies. You cant go diggin up boddies of people who you KNOW are trying to come back from the dead. I mean we all saw the Thriller video. That was a prophesy.

Dang, I wanted to be the first to say something about Thriller but Shep beat me to it. Well, don't let him watch it or he'll be thinking twice about digging MJ up. What really cracks me up is that he probably had never heard of MJ before Thursday/Friday and now he can't believe he's dead. He's hilarious.

That kid cracks me up. Once, just after he said something extremely random, I asked him, "Where do you come up with teh things you say?" To which he replied, "Mostly my brain!"

Alicia said...

Oh wow. I love that kid!
Let's hang out soon. Seriously.

I'm not quite sure which is my favorite... Maybe the whole Carrot Top death part. :) He is so funny!!! And I've got to ditto all the Michael Jackon coming back from the dead comments... If it's gonna' happen, it'll be with good ole' creepy MJ. ;)
