Quote of the day

While talking to my sister on the phone today I actually heard her say these words as she prepared lunch for her hungry brood:

"I would rather you not eat your food with a screwdriver, I would prefer that you use a spoon."

She gives excellent advice.

And so calm. I'm impressed.

That is exactly what I was thinking. Much sweeter than I would have put it.

Again with the boys/girls thing. She was talking to her son, right?

Hey, a screwdriver is metal, long and had a handle. I can certainly understand the confusion. I swear it's only a matter time until I am heard SCREAMING the exact same thing to my boys...

Actually, she was talking to her four-year-old daughter. The screwdriver was handy, and the melted cheese chunks in her tomato soup was entirely too tempting.

Ok, not to continue with the gender stereo typing, but isn't that a girl for you...hmmm this looks like it will work and possibly better than that spoon! Who invented spoons any way!
