Quote of the weekend
July 16, 2007
I was in the kitchen preparing ribs to put on the grill, which meant I was slathering them with barbeque sauce.
My 8 yr old son came over to the counter and looked at what I was doing for awhile.
“You think it looks good?” I asked.
“Oh yes. And it looks so real I can’t wait to eat it.”
Real? Does my food usually look fake I wondered.
But sometimes it is best not to ask too many questions. Like when your child says that they love what you are wearing. And since it is a tank top and a pair of ratty pajama shorts you make the mistake of asking what they like about the particular outfit. And the child goes on to clarify that it makes your tummy look just like a bowl full of jelly. You know, like Santa, Mom. For this reason I have a don’t ask, don’t tell policy at my house.
After a few minutes he skipped out of the room, while I continued to prepare the “real” food.
The next thing I heard was him shouting to his siblings.
“It is SO COOL. Mom is smearing fake blood all over the meat. Fake blood! AWESOME!”
