This installment of Quotes by the lovely Andrea Delcore could be dubbed "Quotes of My Life." Andrea is a quirky little thing with a giant heart and a great sense of humor. Show her you love her!
Part I: Life at Home
[very late at night]
Me: "I think as long as I can make my own decisions, I don't care if someone wants to marry someone of the same sex or have multiple wives."
Hank: "What if I wanted to take a second spouse...and it was the toaster?"
Me: "I guess I would want to know your reasons."
Hank: "Would you want to get to know the toaster?"
Me: "I DO know the toaster. That's what makes it weird."
Hank just told our dog, Carla: "You are being both bad and gross. I don't know which one I am punishing you for. We do not fight over Jax's puke."
Hank just coined the phrase, "special kind of a--hole."
"I'm thankful that we didn't know Max licked our wedding cake. Until now."
Mom: "You've been saying that for years...you got that from F Troop? I thought you made that up."
Dad: "Dear, I've never had an original thought in my life."
"What does it say about bath time at our house that I found an empty beer bottle among the bath toys after it was over?"
Hank: "Pubic hair? That's what it is. What else do you want me to call it? Pubes?"
Hank [to toddler]: "Henry, do you want to say the prayer tonight?" Henry: "Yes."
Hank: "What do you want to tell God that you're grateful for?"
Hank: "Thank you, God, for cheese."
Follow up comments: "Thank you, cheeses" and "Blessed are the cheesemakers."
Part II: Overheard at the Office

Me: "No, but unfortunately you HAVE reached your aggregates."
"The person you are trying to reach is not accepting calls right now. I love that. I'm changing my voicemail to that."
Just got a meeting request. Subject: "I have lemon bites at my desk." Accept!
"Did he just say liberry?!?"
A: "How much would you spend on a pot?"
B: "What kind of pot?"
A: "Cooking pot."
B: "Oh, that kind of pot."
Me: "Oh my gosh. Samich is NOT a word. I'll never last in this place."
[later] "Samich Lady just called a student Mini Van. She thinks that's his name."
[even later] "She may say samich, but she sure makes good tamales."
One of my students changed her name and said, "I am not mentally ill, I am NOT!" Then she threatened me. Sure, you're not.
Just heard my boss say, "My boob denied your request."
Part III: Social Media

Kindergartner: "When I am 100 years old, I will be an old guy with wrinkly skin. I will wear a new shirt everyday. I will live at Alex's house and we will play video games everyday. We will eat orange chicken made by our robot foodmaker. He says 'Make Food' and kills bad guys. He's a transformer, but that's a secret."
A: "That face says it all."
B: "You mean it says, 'Mischief and mayhem?'"
"There was a 'This American Life' episode about a rooster. The guy started loving that rooster, and he wanted to just keep paying the fine. Eventually he had to get rid of it though. It went to live on a farm. Which is where roosters BELONG."
A: "Cleaned my butt off today. Dang. Time for bed."
B: "Nothing better than going to bed with a clean butt. ;)"
Part IV: Any Given Day
"Don't think of it as losing your virginity-think of it as gaining sex."
"This American Life just lost my interest when Ira Glass said Act One was titled Dartmouth Atlas Shrugged."
"I am wondering how string cheese trivia would know that a cat has a higher IQ than monkeys, chimps, and humans. And I'm suspicious." [later] "Re-read string cheese trivia. Maybe a cat is smarter than me. The cat's IQ is SURPASSED only by monkeys, chimps, and humans."

"I want to know why a Constitution class can't stick to THE CONSTITUTION. You bunch of conservatives. My instructor said, and I quote, 'Sex education has done nothing but teach kids how to have sex.'

Travis: "Hey, Andrea! I am going to miss the Delcores so much. When I first met you and you were with Hank, I was like, "Damn! She is REALLY young." But then I got to know you, and you're cool. And meeting you, and Hank, and Henry and Sammy Baby Jr, I'm going to REALLY miss the Delcores! I can tell you this because I'm not drunk."
