While Curtis filled up with gas the other day, I went in to get us both some coffee. Someone had mistakenly put the hazelnut creamers into the regular creamer bin, but I didn't notice it until I was part way through doctoring the second cup. Neither of us are fans of flavored creamers, but Curtis is especially opposed to it.
When I got back to the truck, I apologized profusely to Curtis for the mix-up, and offered him the less hazelnutty coffee.
As we were pulling out of the gas station, Michael commented from the back seat,
What if your name was Zel Nut?
Then I could say, 'Hey, Zel Nut!'
I mentioned this post to my boys and they informed me that the "Hey, Zel Nut!" line was actually from Adventure Time on Cartoon Network.
So, at least in this instance, Mike was not the witty-genius that I thought he was.
