Insights into The Daughter

So I went to The Daughter's Facebook page to see what she was up to.
They all have a page of their favorite quotes. She may have written some
of these on her own, but I know a lot of them are gleaned from different
web pages that you can link to, I'm not cool enough to really understand
the intricacies of Facebook, but these give me an insight into the dark
recesses of an Eighth-grader's mind.

I am taking a chance with my life here by even posting this, since I know
that The Daughter has read at least one of my posts...I really hope she
doesn't see this one!

Peace be with you.


  1. "I'm nice to the weird kid, so he will spare my life when he snaps."

    Hahahaha oh wow you really got me laughing there. There are so many things in the list that I do too (singing the alphabet, calculator) It's really fun to read!

    I missed your blogggggg, Joe! I've got a heck of some catching up to do!

  2.'re gonna be in trouble!!!!

    Love the "yo banana boy" thing!

  3. I think she's gonna use this one on you: Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, forever to repair.

    Just a guess... ;)

  4. There's a lot of great one's in there. Because I watch a lot of TV with my 7 YO granddaughter, I really like this one:
    "Patrick! I'm claustrophobic!" "Nice Try Squidward, but there's no Santa here."

    nice post Joe!

  5. I always in trouble with her, BB, but that one post of mine she read was back in unless she is READING without COMMENTING I think I am safe...

    I will use this one on her too, Kristy.

    I like that line too, Pat.

  6. Having recently shut down my Facebook I decided for some things the less I know the better. That being said, while I was on Facebook I always went to my daughter's page. It was the main reason I signed see her college exploits in pictures etc. Your daughter is just starting to discover who she is and I think it is neat that you now have a better insight into the things she thinks are cool. I am soon someday very soon she will be spouting some of these kinds of quotes at the dinner table...testing herself out and you!

  7. Nowadays everyone who has been being a parents will be peeping their kid, trough their FB...
    I also did the same...
    but I like this quote: 'Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, forever to repair'
    Nice post, Joe!
    Wishing you well.

  8. Haha, some wonderful quotes in there! I took a peek into my 15yr old daughter's Facebook page - her's was no where near as benign! I made her close it down..

  9. Wow, powerful stuff.
    my fav and personal belief is
    "Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, forever to repair."

    I trust no one. : (
    What does that say about me?
    Great post today.

  10. haha, ah yes.
    the world of facebook is a wonderful place.

  11. Both my teens are facebook friends (along with several of their friends) and I love having that view into their lives.

    (BTW, there are also #1 pencils, which have a darker lead.)

  12. Amazing how kids are quite in love with Facebook!-no doubt.
    "Yo banana boy" it!
