For those of you back in Florida who are missing your daily dose of Ender, I have a few tidbits for you, Ender-isms if you will, zingers that only Ender can come up with.
1. “I didn’t want to go to that party. Why did you make me go? I told you I didn’t want to go. I KNEW that I couldn’t behave if I was there, and I would get into trouble, I just didn’t tell you that!” -told to me while I was disciplining him for misbehavior at the party.
2. “Mom, this meal is good! No, its not good…its supercallafragilistic great. Its a 10 star meal!” -said to me the night I made sauteed shrimp over noodles, as easy and simple as a meal can get.
3. “Mom, what are you making?” Ender asks, as I am carelessly sprinkling spices into a bowl. “I’m making perogies,” I reply. “Mom, how did you find out how to make them?” he inquires. “I found a recipe on the internet”, I say. “Oh”, he replies, “Did that recipe tell you to sprinkle the spices all over the counter and outside of the bowl like you are doing??”
4. “Mom, I don’t like my art teacher. He’s mean He’s always grumpy, and he makes us outline our pictures in black and he ruins all our pictures. I make a nice picture and he comes over and says ‘outline it in black’! Black must be his favorite color or something, but it just wrecks all my pictures!”
