song and dance

The scene:
Zach and I driving to Willen Lakes in Milton Keynes and getting completely lost as every road in Milton Keynes looks the exactly same, so I stop to ask directions from someone at a petrol station. He says we need road H6 and Zach had previously said he thought it was 'H...something'.
Zach (singing to a tune he's just made up) 'I was right I was right I was right I knew it I was right...
J: Ok enough thanks I've been doing my best...
Zach: I think I'm going to add some dance steps to that song when we get home mum...

My favourite poet - Hafiz

There are different wells within your heart.
Some fill with each good rain,
Others are far too deep for that.

In one well
You have just a few precious cups of water,
That "love" is literally something of yourself,
It can grow as slow as a diamond
If it is lost.

Your love
Should never be offered to the mouth of a
Only to someone
Who has the valor and daring
To cut pieces of their soul off with a knife
Then weave them into a blanket
To protect you.

There are different wells within us.
Some fill with each good rain,
Others are far, far too deep
For that.

Sky Blue

Zach: Which episode of Better off Ted shall we watch?
J: Oh I don't mind, you pick.
Zach: Ok. You're episode 8 and I'm episode 3. Ip, dip, dog shit, put it in the microwave and out comes YOU!
J: I'm sure that always used to be 'ip, dip sky blue, who's it? Not you'
Zach: Not any more mum, everyone at school says the 'dog shit' one now!

Smarter than the average...

Yogi and BooBoo's plane crashing
Yogi: Check the safety manual BooBoo...
BooBoo: I have Yogi but it's just a picture of us screaming...

If it's not bad it's good...

A: You were wrong - you said I'd like that last woman but I really didn't.
J: Oh yeah but when I said you'd like her what I really meant was you wouldn't hate her. I probably should have mentioned that I've lowered the bar quite considerably when it comes to my expectations of our customers recently. It's way, way down there now!
A: So as long as they don't make me want to stab them you think they're ok?
J: Hey it works for me...

one and only

Zach: oh mum, you're the best mum ever!
J: thanks baby
Zach: by that of course I mean you're the only one I've got. Still on the plus side you don't have any competition...
J: I'll take it.

Phil: You mean that?
