Let's Make a Deal!

As Stomper has reminded us. Christmas is only seven weeks away. J.T. wants the typical boy things for Christmas: Star Wars Lego Star Destroyer, video games, etc. But Abby.... she's asking for something special. This was our conversation on the way to the Recycling Center today.

Abby: "Can I get a real baby?"

Me: "No!!"

Abby: "Oh." Pause. "How 'bout some french fries then?"

Me: "Sounds like a deal."

We all have moments where we wished that we had considered that compromise!

Aunty Evil said...

I truly understand that dilemma.

She's easy to please. French Fries the answer to all of our problems.

Melinda said...

Oh Auny! :-(

If I could trade all the french fries in the world in for you, I would. I'd even trade in my wine and chocolate. And THAT's saying a lot.

Aunty Evil said...

Oh geeze Melinda, don't be going all weepy on me, willya?

I want the baby, the fries, the chocolate AND the wine!

Oi Melinda and Aunty E - enough already - you are making ME tear up.

And that is a great post dear HA.

Oh, she's just too easy to please! If only all the tough questions in life could be satisfied with french fries (or as we Aussies say, chips).

At least she didnt' ask to recylce a baby !
French Fries do solve a lot of problems.

Sounds like you got off lightly there.

Sounds like JT and my Padawan Learner have the same Christmas List! Gotta love a girl who'll settle for French Fries.
