polite dinner conversation

daughter says the word "fart" and then snickers. the rest of the conversation went something like this...

son: stop that!

mom: why?

son: she's pretending to fart on me.

mom: so?

son: she's pretending it's funny.

mom: well it is funny (daughter snickering some more.), and besides, you do it for real and think it's funny.

son: well, only 4 times.

mom: see?

daughter: yeah, but you fart and don't even know it and you're stinky.

son: yeah, but she's done it maybe like 2 million times.

mom: i don't think she's old enough to have said "fart" 2 million times.

daughter: uh huh.

mom: i think it would probably take you about 20 years to pull that off.

daughter: not if you went non-stop.

mom: *sigh*

Awfully glad there are families like ours out there, that partake in edifying conversation at the table.

I'm all good with it. We just have to remind them "not when company is here."

disclaimer:  caution must be taken when reading my blog.  i'm a new creature and the Lord continues to mold and shape me through his will.  older entries may seem to contradict the newer ones.  there's a pretty good chance that they do for two reasons.  first, because of my nature, as i strive for perfection, i will continue to fall short of the mark and should therefore be thankful for his grace and should seek his (and your) forgiveness for having been so foolish in the past.   second, i continue to grow in him; and as changes are made, i have made attempts to change my blog to reflect those changes. in this event, please refer to #1.   if you're interested in perfection, my blog isn't the place to be.  pick up a king james bible (yup, i'm one of THOSE people) and read his PERFECT word.
