Who is the Fastest?

So, we were sitting in the van, waiting for General Mayhem to come out of Wal*mart, when the Major asked me a question.

“Dad, who is fastest?”

“Fastest at what?”

“I am fast. General Mayhem is faster. You are the fastest!”

“I won’t be for long,” I replied. “Pretty soon the General will be faster than me.”

“How come?”

“Because he is 13, I am 44, and…”

“You’re fat?” he interjected.

How can you not love these kids?

I was told to make myself a turtle towel since it 'fit' my speed. That was from Borg. He'll be eating my dust Monday at running club.

Ah honesty. Does one truly have to love it? I did tell Blondie the other day that she could still practice honesty, but she needs to learn a little tact and discretion. She responded later by asking if she could have my sweater when I grow out of it.

My kids are always telling me what a fat bum I have, especially Trey. I'm trying to retrain him not to insult his future wife. lol

thanks for stopping by to comment on my blog, btw. did you notice that that post hadn't actually been finished? short story, i fell asleep. long story is recounted in a subsequent post.

it is nice to be reading you again. i'd lost track of you after you vanished without a trace from hsb. (i'll be moving here at some point, too.) it was nice of our mutual friend carpe banana to link up to you a couple weeks ago.
