The scene: the moosh, Grandpa Fish and me playing Candyland. (For the three thousandth time. Seriously.)

the moosh: I don’t want to play anymore.

me: I don’t think that’s an option, grandpa’s winning, he has the winning fire in his eyes.

the moosh: I have bags under my eyes.



  1. This may be one of the funniest things she has ever said.

  20. Priceless!

    I’m with the Moosh, Candyland causes bags under my eyes as well. The stupid princess is just too perky and makes me feel old, and shiny enough.

  21. The moosh is really good at not wanting to play anymore when she’s losing. She kicked my trash three times at Candyland and then when I came close to winning just one game she folded up the board and stated, “I don’t want to play anymore.”

    I think she learned that from her dad.
