Deep thoughts at the dinner table

This is my second contribution to Very Funny Friday at Navel Gazing, because I forgot all about this conversation from last night until just now.  Also, to understand this post you might need to know that my husband Dean did not vote Democrat in the most recent presidential election.  Also, I’m Zina, Ike is our 11-year-old, and Mabel is 8.


Mabel:  “If you had three things to live for, what would they be?  Mine would be:  animals, food, and life.”

Ike:  “Life is worth living for?”

Zina:  “That counts.”

Mabel:  “Wait . . . life . . . to live for — oh, yeah.  [Laughs.]  Oh, and I forgot to say Heavenly Father.  So, four things:  Heavenly Father, animals, food, and life.”

Ike:  “Mine would be family, friends, video games, and stupid games I make up with my friends.”

Zina:  “You’re not going to include Nalley’s chili on your list?”

Dean:  “Mine would be . . . Barack Obama.  [Pause.]  That’s all.”

    Hi! Thanks for coming to my blog and for the suggestion! That is definitely a good thing to know.

    Obama will save the bunnies.
    Wait–he’ll change the bunnies? Or bring change to the bunnies?

    So it’s official – I am the rudest blogger in the blogosphere. Sorry it took so bloomin’ long to get by and visit for Very Funny Friday. LOVE the pic of the President holding the bunnies. They aren’t selling THAT one at Walmart yet 🙂

    Have a great weekend and I really am sorry I haven’t visited sooner.

    Rude? What? Anyone who visits here at any time is a delightful human being. 🙂

    Oh, P.S. I love your blog banner — if I’d ever gotten around to making a February banner it would have been kinda similar.
