Fool me once?

Today Brielle was trying to play a trick on Max. She told him to say "fork" ten times really fast.

Max said "Fork, fork, fork, fork, fork, fork, fork, fork, fork, fork."

Then she told him to say "fork" five times, really fast.

Max said "Fork, fork, fork, fork, fork."

Next, she told him to say "fork" really fast two times.

Max said "Fork, fork."

Then one time, really fast."

"FORK"

Then she told him to say "fork, r e a l l y s l o w............"

"Fffffffffffoooooooorrrrrrrrrrkkkkkkkk."

Next, Brielle was ready for the punchline, and asked Max "What do you eat your soup with?"

Without hesitation, Max said "CRACKERS!!"

********************************************

Do you remember several years back when Max would use the word "also" at least three times in every sentence?
Do you remember how sad we were when he grew out of this adorable habit?
Well, never fear! Max has a new phrase! He begins EVERY sentence with..

"Well......... it's just that......."

Max: "Well, it's just that Aaron was being mean to me!"
Me: "What is he doing to be mean?"
Max: "Well, it's just that he won't let me play on the Wii!"
Me: "I told him to turn it off because it's time for bed."
Max: "Well, it's just that he turned it off and I didn't get to win!"
Aaron: "I let you finish the game first, mom told me to turn it off."
Max: "Well, it's just that I didn't win the game and I wanted to play it again until I won!"
Me: "It's bedtime, you've had plenty of time to play."
Max: "Well, it's just that I DIDN'T WIN AND I NEED TO WIN BEFORE I STOP PLAYING!"
Me: " NO, It's time to get your pajamas on."
Max: "Well, it's just that I don't know where my pajamas are!"
Me: "I washed them, they're in the dryer."
Max "Well, it's just that they shouldn't be in the dryer, they should be in my room!"
Me: "You could take them out of the dryer and put them in your room."
Max: "Well, it's just that I don't want to do that, I want to play the Wii!"

But tell me, Max, how do you REALLY feel about the snow?

We got hit with a snowstorm this afternoon.
As we were driving home in the storm Max says "I have 200 reasons why I don't like snow......

#1. Because it's cold.
#2. I don't like it.
#3. I don't like it.
#4. I don't like it.
#5. I don't like it.
#6. I don't like it.
#7. I don't like it.
And the rest are "I don't like it."
