Gassy, And Furthermore, Jejune

I was looking for synonyms to help me describe the video you're about to watch.

Banal, yes.

Insipid, maybe.

Inane, most definitely.

Believe it or not, quotidian was the word I entered into my trusty online thesaurus. Quotidian was a favorite of mine in high school. Thought it made me sound wicked smaht n' shit. Never in a million years would I have believed that it managed little more than branding me a stuck-up douche bag. Twenty years later, I'm beginning to see where I might have been a little off-base on that one. Especially since, you know, my trusty online thesaurus didn't even recognize it as a word.

So it's a boring video. I know that. I'm confident that those of my readers who are grandparents won't care, and will watch it 2 or 3 dozen times anyway. The thing I want the rest of you to concentrate on is the manic chatter in the background. That's Boy. And you'll notice, you never see him, but he never shuts the fuck up.

It's nice to see the baby doesn't have any lasting effects from the trampoline incident! Wish I could have been there. Love you guys

You are right. I watched the clip 3 times already. I didn't want to miss anything. Very cute kids. I hope you all had as much fun as it appeared. I wish we could have been there. Thanks - keep the clips coming our way.

That was some fun Easter egg hunt! But you guys were cheating, telling Amanda where the eggs were. I can't believe Emma's flawless Norwegian. Gee, not in a million years and hours at Nygårdskole would I have managed...Happy belated Easter!

Of course you have to help the little ones. I remember doing that for you. At least I think I remember it. We had an Easter Egg Hunt once didn't we? I'm sure we must have. Yeh, I think I remember it for sure, maybe. Anyway, I love seeing my grandkids on video.

It's the age. Mine doesn't shut up either but sadly all he ever talks about is Mario Party 8.
