Coming back to Quick Takes after a few weeks off, with all the fanfare befitting a deity, because;

The older kids were way too quick in correcting him. I should’ve been allowed to enjoy my immortal status a bit longer.

Oh wait I can because, BOOM, nectar of the gods!

Okay, now before I get covered with sores and/or locusts I’ll stop.

Uttered loudly during last weekend’s 40 hours procession;



Mon-STRANCE Fulton.  Just smile and pray, smile and pray. Nobody is questioning our ability to raise our children in the faith. Moving along.

In discussing Siri, a feature I never use, but which Addie would engage in conversation with for hours;

Byron is less impressed. Now, make Siri sound like Vadar, and you’ll be onto something.

5. Addie’s logical argument for nursing care;

Me: Man, Pizza Hut sounds really good right now, but that would make me so sick.

Addie: I don’t understand why you just don’t eat some and get sick. Pizza Hut is so good, I’d just eat it and get sick.

Me: Because I have too many responsibilities to be laid up in bed all day.

Addie: This is why we need a nurse.

Me: So I can have the luxury of eating Pizza Hut?

Addie: Yes.

7. Lastly, I leave you with a huge time sink / online babysitter; How It Should Have Ended. Some of the clips get a bit PG but everyone sits so quietly for so long I can pretend I didn’t hear anything.

    My kids just showed me Dumb Ways to Die on Youtube…funny, and a little PG also. Sounds right up your alley! And you make me want to drink that whole 6 pack of cider – dern pregnancy ruins everything!

    I’d be all over that cider if I could drink. (It’s not for religious reasons — my liver and I just have a pact that I won’t abuse it with alcohol and in exchange, it doesn’t crap out on me before I hit old age. So far, I’m keeping up my end of the bargain but it’s refusing to do so.)
