The boys were eager to do some Halloween crafting today, but we were all out of Elmer's Glue. In a moment of desperate delirium, I brought out the only adhesive we had on hand: Gorilla Glue.
Luckily, the crafting came off without incident, but we did have this interesting exchange:
"Why do they call it Gorilla Glue?" asked Alex.
"Well," I said, "because it is stronger than a gorilla. Be careful, it could glue your hand to the table."
"What is smarter than a gorilla?" Jacob asked in a sinus-stuffed daze.
"Nothing!" said Alex, correcting his brother's mistake.
"That's not true," Simeon said, coming to my defense. "Mama is."
Oh, the flattery I get with this job can sometimes give me a big head.
