Nice Try

"Mom, did you know that even though these broccolis look like little trees, they aren't really little trees?"


"No, they're actually flowers."

"I believe you're right."

 "I am right and flowers are nice nature and I don't want to destroy nature by eating it."

"Hmm. Who do you think does it?"

"A flying cat with one human hand who's kind of an elf and is one of Santa's pets."

"Okay then."

Out to Lunch

"Hey, Bob? We're going to Daddy's office to meet him for lunch."

"Wow! I don't wanna do that!"

"Why not?"

"Well, what are we doing there? Will other people be there? Will there be kids there? Is it a fundraiser?"

"What? No, it's lunch. With Daddy. At his office."

"Okay. He'll be excited to see us in the middle of the daylight during the week."

"... a fundraiser?"

"Bob? Do you want a peanut butter and jelly sandwich or turkey and cheese?"

"I want a turkey and cheese and mayonnaise and bread sandwich. It's the best kind of sandwich. It's really, really good."




"And Mom? You know what else is good?"

"What's that?"

"Bones are good."

"For lunch?"

"No. Bones are good for holding your body together and making it so you can have a face and do things."

"That's true."

"Mom? It's really, really true."

Plumbing and Things

"Mama, can you lift up the top so I can see in there again?"


"What does that stopper do?"

"It keeps the water from going out, I think."

"And what about that thing over there?"

"I don't know what it's called but the water comes out of there and then when the tank fills up it stops."

"One more thing."


"How does God make the wind?"

"I adore you."
