Kids Say The Darndest Things

The 7 year old: “Mom, did you know that boys go to college to get more knowledge, but girls go to Jupiter to get more stupider?”

me: “Where’d you hear that?”

The 7 year old: “VBS.”  (Vacation Bible School)

me: “That’s great. Say, would you like to know how the real world works?”

The 7 year old: “No.”

me: “That’s okay, I’ll tell you anyway. It’s ‘Girls go to college to get more knowledge. Boys go to college to join a fraternity and get drunk and stupid.’ ”

And that, my friends, is what she sing-songed the rest of the night while she skipped around. No no, I’ve patted myself on my own back, you don’t need to do it again for me.

So hey, I bet you’re wondering why I have a photo of Jim Belushi up there with my kid.  Completely unintentional on my part.  It’s because WordPress can be hard.  So hard.  “Thank you sir, may I have another?”

    You know, I spent so much time feeling embarrassed that I inadvertently included the Animal House photo above that it never occurred to me that it’s actually quite relevant to the content of my post. Hahahahaha!
