It's Grrrrrreat!

A conversation I had with a six-year old girl today:

(I spot that she has a quarter and so I hand her another quarter from my pocket.)

ME: "Boy, you sure do have a lot of money."
HER: "Yup."
ME: "What are you going to buy with all that money? A pony?
HER: "Nope."
ME: ... a tiger?"
HER: "A tiger AND a lion. And, boy, is my house sure going to be crazy...(long pause)...when they have babies."

I'm pretty sure there's a Zen koan in there somewhere, but I've been knocked into too many new levels of enlightenment (just from hearing it) to know for sure. Roar...

Seriously.. does no one think that conversation is as funny as I do..and another thing, do you think you could start doing this more often.. I check it daily and nothing new.. Follow through honey, keep it up because some people find what goes through your head a lot more interesting than the latest Law and Order episode.Just wanted you to know....

That is adoratard...a lot of imagination for so young.

My niece was on the phone with me talking like a robot. "Hi my name is keira and I am a ro-bot".

I couldn't believe it since she is only just over 2.
