Jack on Costco

Age 10: 

Jay and Jack went to a few stores looking for a new bike for Jack. They didn't have much luck at the first couple places so in desperation, Jay asked Jack if he thought Costco might have bikes.  Jack said, "If they do, they are probably low quality...or they sell them in packs of six."

Jack on the Game With the Claw

Age 10:

(As relayed to me by Jay)

Jay and Jack went to dinner with a family friend of ours. While they waited for their food, the friend's son wanted to play the game where you drag the claw to hover over a bunch of prizes. If you aren't familiar with the game, there is a controller to move the claw and once you have it where you want, you press a button and the claw drops down to attempt to grab one of the prizes. 

Our friend's son asked his mom for some money to play the game. As she took money out of her wallet, she asked Jack if he wanted some money to play, too. 

Jack stated matter of factly, "No thanks.  You can never win anything playing that game. I will just stand there and watch him lose all his money. "

Jack on Being a Foodie

Age 10:

We are having guests this weekend and Jay and I were discussing the food plans.  Jay mentioned making appetizers of garlic bread with marinara and goat cheese, and also having some salami and cheese available. 

Jack heard us talking about it, came into the room and said, "So you are going to have an afternoon charcuterie available?"

Jack on Guys

Age 10:

Jay was discussing how women and men interact socially in different ways. 

Jay mentioned an example of playing a bags game...guys who don't know each other will start playing the game and get to know each other as they play. Girls, in general , would like to spend an hour getting to know each other before they play the game. 

Jack said, "So guys are kind of like gorillas then?"
