Time for more homeless quotes from Mr. Simon.  (“Mr. Simon” is TM my cousins Arnie & Jane.)

Upon counting his cousin Ben’s shots and calculating points at an arcade basketball game:

“I’m like a score-board”

On his preferred route driving home from his grandparents’ house:

“No, no, Daddy. Don’t stay on 64; take 264 to Taylorsville Rd. It’s faster that way.”

Said on the way home from grandparents’ house minutes after playing basketball there:

“I miss basketball.”

Said in the car on the way home from his last HYR soccer game:

“I miss soccer.”

Said while walking from tennis court to vacation rental house:

“I miss tennis.”

Said on bike on the way from the ocean to vacation rental:

“I miss the ocean.”

Said upon driving past golf course:

“When am I going to learn to play golf?”

Because, you know, the poor boy plays no sports at all…

And the pièce de résistance:

“Boy, mommy, the world got better after I was bornded [sic].”

“What do you mean?”

“Well, you and Daddy got chicken pox, but after I was born I got a vaccine so I won’t get chicken pox.”

“Did you hear about that on a show today?”

“No, daddy told me about it one day when we were coming back from soccer or basketball. I don’t remember. It was a long time ago.”

“Well it’s good that you remember that!”

“Yeah, you know what Mommy?  My brain never lets me down.”
