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.”
