Cookie Crumbs

Sign spotted while out and about :

Get your POT here!
Best POT in town!
POT sale ends today!!

Jake: "Maybe we should hook them up with the library...."

I think the garden center was trying to drum up a little business...

Hubs: "So I have THREE days left of vacation time."

Mom (grins): "I have a whole MONTH left of vacation time."

Hubs gives me a dirty look. He's obviously jealous.

Jake noisily bounds out the door onto the front porch, skidding to a stop in front of us.

Jake: "Hey did you know that ..... (insert extremely complicated science explanation here that nobody knows or cares about unless they are...oh...scientists)"

Blank looks from me and Hubs.

Jake continues: "....And I want to take this length of copper tubing, although I think it might have to be steel instead, and stuff it full of _______ and ________ and then attach it to a toy car and light it and maybe it would explode but I'm not sure but it would be so cool to try and..."

Me: "No"
Jake: "But..."
Me: "NO."
Jake: "But I wouldn't..."
Me: "The answer was NOOOOOOOO"

Jake bounds back inside.

Hubs: "On the second thought, going back to work doesn't sound like such a bad idea."
