Hope you have a good day.

April 11, 2011


One of my favorite things about Lloyd is that every morning when we leave for school I grab my stuff and as we head out the door I say, “‘Bye, House” and Lloyd answers (in the voice of Mr. Narwhal), “Bye, Lauren.”

Sometimes he’ll add a little bit to the farewell: “Have a good day.” or “….Don’t forget to be nice to the children.” or “…. be sure to make enchiladas for dinner.” Sometimes my house can be really bossy.

    I just told one of our fellow guest-house lodgers “Have a good day!” and he responded, “Yeah, right.” Hope Lauren is less cynical.


    • Lloyd Said on:

      Do people say to you in the morning, “Hast du gut geschlaffen?” And, if so, how do you answer?


      • Gretchen Said on:

        If they do I just smile and nod. What is the correct response to such a question?


      • Lauren's mom Said on:

        I don’t speak German at all, but sometimes my husband says (and I don’t spell German, either), “Schlaf gut.” So, are you asking if I slept well? If so, the answer is “yes”. 🙂

    All I get is a blank stare from Max on my way out. Maybe from now on I’ll imagine him saying “meow” in Mr. Narwhal’s voice.

    We tell Max, our labradoodle, goodbye. He just stares at us with his big, brown eyes.

    Oooo, oooo….does the house ever do Gerard Butler Lloyd?
