Boys: You pee on it!
Him: Okay, so you need to pick a buddy. If you get stung, you need to pick a friend who will pee on you.

Him: What about if you get stung on your shoulder?
Jack: I have extreme accuracy.

Jack on XBox and Watching TV

Age 10:

The kids had the day off on Friday.  Jack came downstairs and immediately turned on the XBox and started gaming away.
Me: So how many hours of XBox and TV watching do you think you will end up doing today?
Jack: I don't know.
Me (sarcastically): Do you think it will be over 10 hours, or under 10 hours?
Jack: I'd say just under 10 hours.
Me: Really?
Jack: Yeah, just under 10.  What did you think?  I was going to go whole hog on that?
