Totally Quotable Arlo: ice cream edition


This was Arlo’s yelled response after being told that we’d all be getting ice cream after dinner. It struck me as being very self-aware, as though he knew what his limits were, but felt as though he needed to keep pushing at the outer boundaries of what’s possible. I’d like to think that perhaps this is a sign that he might be destined for greatness as a scientist or an explorer. He could, of course, just be a dick.

    And, yes, for those of you who may have put two and two together, that’s him eating ice cream in the Go Ice Cream ad currently at the top of the page.

    The ad is awesome. It looks like he just smoked a big fatty and then showed up to have his picture taken.

    FWIW, I meant the former definition, not the latter:

    All kids want too much. It’s their nature.

    From our song “Too Much Is Not Enough”:

    You’re so extreme, you’re super heavy
    You’re one step over the line
    Not what you seem, don’t try and tell me
    I know what’s really on your mind

    At least it wasn’t “I want yours.”

    Nothing brings out the worst in children better than dessert.
