Mila and Ethan were playing the game of LIFE this morning, as they often do on Sunday mornings because I restrict the use of the computer and/or XBox for gaming purposes. I went over to see how it was going--Ethan was an athlete and lived in a mobile home, and Mila was an entertainer living in a lakeside cabin. I noticed that Ethan's car had no wife in it, but he had a kid in the backseat. I asked, "How come Ethan didn't get married?" Mila explained, "Well, we accidentally skipped the marriage part, but look how many kids I have!" Sure enough, she had a carload of kids and no husband to be bothered with. Oh, how LIFE has changed in these modern times!
Also, a minute ago, I made hot cocoa and I asked Mila if she wanted Cool Whip in hers. "No thanks, Mom, that would be like taking credit for your chocolate." I didn't even ask for an explanation. Some things are better left untouched.
