Reasons I should write for Hallmark commercials.

This morning in the car-

Daughter- "Mommy, what is the difference between gambling and just spending money on something fun?"

Me- "Gambling is when you spend money so that you can win a lot of money. Your chances of winning aren't very good. It's just a waste."

Daughter- "You mean like running through Wal-mart naked while eating 8 hard boiled eggs?"

Me- "Uhhhh...No... That would be someone daring you to do something stupid. Did you just make that up?"

Daughter- "Nope. Remember when we were getting the new tire and the guy at Wal-mart said "This Wal-mart is weird. We had a guy run through here naked the other night?" Then Daddy made up the part about the boiled eggs."

Me- "Ummm.... Okaaayyy."


Daughter- "Do you know what made my day extra special, Daddy?"

Husband- "What?"

Daughter- "You! Having lunch with me!" pause...points to me, "And You! You know, 'cause you exist."

Me- "Thank you."

With a daughter who provides you with that kind of ammunition, I say you should go for it - the job is yours for the asking!

Susanne said...

She's too funny!

Chrissy said...

Doesn't that make you feel about 10 feet tall and invincible?

Grafted Branch said...

...cause you exist!...LOL.

That is just too precious.

Wow...I'm not sure what catagory the store would file your Hallmark cards under, but I think just they might sell! LOL

And do really have guys running through your Walmart naked???

(By the way, Melanie...thanks for your great comment on my post...I'll gladly take that Susan Lucci crown and wear it proudly!) :D In fact, I'm going to link to you concerning that...:)

I think your hubby might have a career in commercials if he makes things like that up on the spot. Might be a gamble, though...

Lol. Love the 'cause you exist' bit.
