That's so great!
The only shape your two-year old knows is "plumbob".

What shape is a "plumbob," exactly? I thought it was just a nonsense word they used.  ???

 A plumbob is a real thing.. It's a weight that is hung on a string and used in the same manner as a spirit level. Most building plumbobs though, have the pointed shape at the bottom but have a rounded top.

You decided to take a picture with you having a plumbbob attached. Well, Halloween is near. I think I will be a couch potato (with plumbbob attached) for the rest of the day, haha... (I hate scary stuffs) So, well yeah time to prepare things.

When you take a sip of your coffee and it taste so good that as you thoughtfully look down at your cup,  you find yourself thinking "noom".  :o

In Season 7 of NCIS Ducky mentions that he had a pet guinea pig called Hunca Munca. Is that a popular name? Because when I thought about it I realised it is the name of one of the cats that you can adopt in Sims 3 Pets. This particular cat is nearly always in the pet pool.

It's from Beatrix Potter: The Tale of the Two Bad Mice.  Although why a mouse's name should turn up for a cat is another mystery...

You have to have the birds and the bees talk with your tweenager, and aren't quite prepared for some of the bizzare questions that they come up with. You give yourself the embarrassed moodlet.

Aahahahaha... all really amusing ;D

My take: Seeing a car parked in a disorderly way near your home, and wanting to open up the laptop and do NRaas > Overwatch > Immediate.

And another: Pressing '4' while waiting for something that takes awhile to finish on the computer.

I've played too much sims when I start to watch builds on Youtube... then I use my keyboard to navigate the game, forgetting that the game on the screen is not mine to control.

It's reassuring to know I'm not the only one!  :D

When you walk past a log covered in moss and "look for frogs" immediately pops into your head.

When even your cat is craving for your attention so takes to sitting on top of your mouse.... while your hand is still using it to play sims!
