Goose: "Mom, you know how you said I couldn' t mow the lawn..."
Mom: "well, yea" (not by yourself anyway)
Goose: "I'm feeling really crestfallen about that."
Mom: (somewhat surprised that he felt that way and REALLY surprised at his choice of words) "I'm really sorry you're so upset about that."
Goose: (long pause) "Actually I just said that to see if you knew what crestfallen meant."
All I could do was shake my head and laugh. Benson has a habit of using words that I don't think belong in mainstream society anymore. Mainly because people like *ME* have no idea what they mean and I really don't like to feel stupid. Like father, like son. At least I knew what this word meant.
