This is not nearly as funny as it could be because we can't remember the original comment, but in the vein of several of my other blogging friends' recent posts, this just cracked me up and I wanted to share.
Sara and I were talking about something random and she made a comment under her breath to me. Evan was walking by and he heard it from a distance. He blurted out in complete unbelief, "You forgot your omelette?"
It caught Sara and me completely by surprise and we just laughed ourselves silly. It was just so sudden and disconnected-completely unrelated to whatever it was that we were talking about. Now it is the new phrase. All afternoon, if someone was frustrated with their homework, either Sara or I would ask, "Aw,did you forget your omelette? I hate it when that happens." As they were leaving for school this morning, (and this involves a Brian Regan reference, for all you fans out there) I called to Sara and Evan, "Don't forget your omelette!" at which they both replied in unison, "You too!"
I love inside jokes like this. They enrich a family's culture.
