Here's a conversation that happened yesterday between my 8 year old grandson and me...
Me: Victor, do you want to put that gingerbread train together today (I had purchased one the day before from the dramatically reduced Christmas items table at Walgreens)?
Victor: (Thinking about his XBox 360 alien game) Naw. Let's just do it next Christmas...if you're still around then.
Me: If I'm still around?
Victor: Yeah, you might be dead or something.
Me: You might be dead or something.
Victor: Chances are more likely you might.
Me: Well you never know. It could happen anytime to anybody.
Victor: (Mulling it over) Let's do it next year.
Don't exactly know why, but it struck me as very funny. I don't think the gingerbread will last that long.
And all that has nothing to do with the picture above. I am, however, grateful to still be here.

Out of the mouths of babes. My young son once told me he didn't want to grow up and I asked him why. He answered that he didn't want armpit hair. 8~)ReplyDelete
Nice juicy color!
Too funny, Margaret! Grandkids certainly keep everything in perspective. :)ReplyDelete
