Heard Along the Way

9:32 AM Edit This 18 Comments »
Mr. Airplane and I went on a bike ride last night. The first of the season! It was a gorgeous night and people were out walking their dogs, riding bikes, strollers - the whole gamut - even a few wheelchairs and some gas powered scootered hudlums along the way. Some of you post what you hear on the subway or train, I'm going to post what we heard on the Sioux Falls Bike Trail. Because of course we don't have things like mass transit out here. This is the wild west, people. Get a truck already.

A little boy - about three years old - was running ahead of his mom, coming toward us. He stopped and looked back and decided to wait for her on a bench. And just as we were passing her she says to him, "How does your pelvis feel?"

I was really hoping to get a little farther along before I burst out laughing, but I couldn't help it. And when I finally caught up to Mr. Airplane, he was laughing as well. What three year old knows what his pelvis is? So, every time we went over a bump for the rest of the night, "How does your pelvis feel?" Work THAT into a conversation with your coworkers!

I learned from this, and now intend to ask my kids about their pelvises from time to time.

Matt said...

Im going to ask at least three people that question throughout today.

so, how does your pelvis feel? HA! Classic in the making.

how does my pelvis feel? Well, it feels a little neglected today.

Pelvis sounds so much more refined than crotch...

That's so damn funny and strange. I remember my mom talking to my son when he was about 3 or 4, regarding his bowel movements. I can't even remember why. But. He listened intently then he responded with, "Where are my mowels movements?"

You do realize I will be asking my son and daughter how their pelvis feels before they even get their backpacks off, right?

Bike riding, eh? I haven't been on a bike in years! Must've been nice.

GreenCanary said...

That is a LOADED question, right there.

O'Mama said...

What's it SUPPOSED to feel like, little person? I wonder where he got that adorable question, and why?

Hmm, how does your coccyx feel? Your psoass muscle? I'd love to hear three year-olds try those words out. Happened in my household, 'cause hub is a doc and whenever a medical question would emerge, so too would the anatomy textbook...

LiLu said...

I can't believe you managed to hold it in! I guess we should give her props for using the correct anatomical language...

Sparkling Red said...

How's he supposed to answer that question anyway? How does one's pelvis ever feel?

On their own, kids grow up entirely too fast these days. Parents don't need to help! =)

Kristen said...

Char knows what her pelvis is. She also likes to annouce to people that a baby is going to come out of mommy's vagina.

I'm thinking that getting her that anatomy book may have been a little bit of a mistake after all.

Maybe the kid learned the meaning of Pelvis through a bike? it could explain why he sat as soon as he saw you riding. Bikes can REALLY teach you about how a pelvis feels...

Jamie said...

Hhahahahahahaa omg! that is great. Kids are hilarious.

Ha. Pelvis. How in the world..

MsDarkstar said...

The only thing I could think was that the poor kid had suffered a pelvis related trauma at some point... or that Mom was using pelvis as a euphemism (because "how does your penis feel" seems a pretty socially awkward question to be asking in public).

Maybe it's just late and I haven't a clue what I'm going on about...

coworker: the microwave sounds like death

me: oh yeah? how's your pelvis feel?

coworker: what?
