I Can't Make This Stuff Up. . . . .

I swear, I just can't make things up that are this funny.

Riding home from church yesterday, Nathaniel chimes in with this beauty:

"You know, I'm thinking I need a list of holidays written down where I'll be expected to get my wife presents."

Me:  "Really?  What's on your list?"

N:  "Well, let's see.  There's her birthday, our anniversary, Valentine's Day. . . ."

Yurii, highly amused, gets in on the act:
"You'd better NOT forget Valentine's day, buddy!"

N:  "Easter. . . . "

Me:  "No, you're good on Easter.  No presents there."

N:   "Oh, that's good.  Then there's Mother's Day, and Christmas. . . . "

Me:  "Don't forget the 'Just Because' days.  And the 'I'm sorry you've had a bad week' days. . . "

Y:  "I have clearly failed to make a list."

N:  "This is getting complicated!"

Y:  "Tell me about it, son."


The conversation went on and on - but you get the picture.

How funny is that! I applaud him for realizing such things at such a young age. It will serve him well. (And cooking dinner, doing the laundry, etc. can substitute for flowers and don't cost anything.)
