a darling of minions

When I get very sleepy and am falling asleep, I say some pretty funny things. Once when one of those who live with me asked me to do something, I apparently said, "I'll have my men see to it." I am the only one beneath this roof who has men at their disposal. So... apparently just the other day there was another such instance. Someone was doing schoolwork and was having difficulties. I do remember saying, "I'd help you, but I'm too tired." (I was on the couch, falling asleep.) So the schoolwork-doing person said, "Well, maybe you could get one of your men to help." Then I apparently replied, "Or one of my minions... a darling of minions." And then I am told I said, "That's not a real unit, you know" (meaning that "darling" isn't a counter for minions--you know, a pride of lions, a pod of whales, a darling of minions.)

In other under-20 news... you in the 20-plus age bracket (especially a certain elderly someone who's about to turn 26) may not know about the marvelous retort, "your mom!" I'll explain, as I've had it explained to me:

One person says something like, "I hate this math homework."
The reply must then be, "Your MOM hates this math homework."

Let me give you another example.

"So I was waiting for my turn at DDR and--"
"Your MOM was waiting for a turn at DDR!"

That's all there is to it. Statement. Rejoinder. And if you want to know what the comeback is to the rejoinder--can you guess? yup.
"Your MOM your mom!"

Here's the retort as we used it when I was a kid:

Person A...you can't play basketball....you suck.

Person B...your mom

(retort)Person A...thanks (choking back tears)...my mom died six months ago.

Least that's how it was in the day.

Err... that thing about the Mom retort must be something my ancient 31-year-old brain can't comprehend...

When someone said "your mom"....you would reply "my mom's dead" so as to surprise the guy saying "your mom"...it was supposed to shock them and embarrass them...even though your mom wasn't really dead....make sense?
don't forget...this is adolescent humor here

Your mom wears combat boots!
Asakiyume I am now officially steraling and legitimizing the phrase "A darling of Minions" what an excellent book title that will be!

Re: Your mom wears combat boots!
whatever steraling is?!?! Stealing is of course what I meant.

I love that song. Incidentally, so does my mother.
