My daughter loves to play 20 questions. Only she isn’t thinking of something I need to guess. She just wants to ask a variety of questions, all leading back to the same one she’s been trying to get an answer to for months.
Lil miss: What’s your favorite color?
Lil miss: What’s your favorite food?
Me: Pad Thai
You get the idea….
Then she rattles off several questions back to back. And then she went for it…
Lil miss: Who’s your favorite child?
Me: *giggle* Nice try!
Lil miss: Aww c’mon. You always say you save the best for last. Well I’m the last child…sooooooo?
Me: *thinking damn she’s persistent* Nope, not saying.
Lil miss: Ya know, people who are drunk say what they really mean. You should have some wine.
Me: *laughing so hard I’m almost crying* Did you just say I need to get drunk so you can ask me who my favorite child is?
Lil miss: YUP! *looking mighty smug, I might add*
Me: “laughing harder” GO AWAY! Where do you get this stuff?!?
To think, I taught her to speak and on purpose! Life is never dull with a creative nine-year old trying to outdo herself!
