Conversations with kids

Studmuffin had a very important meeting today, so we ate supper without him. It seems that the "new guy" at work needed Studmuffin to help him find fishing supplies and boat supplies at Bass Pro Shops. Then, Studmuffin had to go over and look at the new guy's boat and do grunting noises over it....

So, the girls and I were eating our chicken fajitas alone. Remember I said they have VBS this week? Bookworm was telling me about a girl who has been visiting. Sierra asked Jesus into her heart yesterday, and today she decided she wants to be a missionary. Popcorn wants to be one too. But she hopes she doesn't have to walk everywhere or she might have to start using a cane. Bookworm informed her she doesn't have to travel across the ocean to be a missionary. She could be a missionary to the Americas. I told them that you can even be a missionary to the US. Bookworm said, "Yeah, like Idaho!"

Okay, that really cracked me up. Idaho. What a random state. Where did that come from? Maybe those potato farmers need some soul saving...

And last but certainly not least, a little known fact for your edification:

The first testicular guard "Cup" was used in Hockey in 1874.

The first helmet was used in 1974.

It took 100 years for men
to realize that the brain is also important.

Now, don't you feel better knowing that? You're welcome.

It's because they didn't realize just where there brain was. We laughed soooo hard.
