full and fat after a (not even that delicious) thanksgiving meal, we are all set for a relaxing friday- and by relaxing i mean we can chill after keith and i have exercised off part of last night’s overeating.
my kids, jacob (13) and raquel (11), keith, and i convene on our porch around 11am and here’s our discussion:
(i transcribed in real time!)
jacob: “let’s play the game of life”
jenny: ” you have no idea how lucky you are …your parents are present. we do practically nothing without you other than work.
we don’t go away without you. we watch tv with you. we are always here…”
keith: ” just tell him you don’t want to play”
jenny: “i was setting up my argument”
raquel: ” jacob I’m not playing life unless you buy me a new iphone case”
jacob: “ok, but it must cost less than $1”
keith: “raquel, you need to give up your iphone case obsession- obsessions like this are unhealthy and ridiculous. ”
raquel: “not gonna happen”
keith: “raquel, serial killers spend their lives obsessing about killing people and then end up killing people!”
jenny: “just say no to the iphone cases honey”
keith: “i was just setting up my argument”
