I Begin To Detect A Pattern Here

This weekend, while motoring about running errands and burning fossil fuels at a rate of $3.23 a gallon, I yielded to my children's piteous requests for McDonald's and went through the drive-thru. Upon completing our order, (we got free fries! Woo-Hoo!), I am heading towards the homestead when the following takes place.

Daughter (Upon Examining Contents of Happy Meal): "Aw, I got a boy toy."

Wife (In front seat and under her breath): "Shit. All I got was a Filet-O-Fish"

Son (To Daughter): "It's a toy car, you can play with it anyway"

Daughter: "It's a Hummer. Hummer's are for boys"

Wife (To Me): "Don't you say a word."

My boys are quite disappointed that the "Pirates of the Carribean" tie-in is over. They still had about 3 toys to collect. My husband on the other hand will be thrilled to learn you now get hummers with your happy meal.

Crabcake: Feel free to link, I was just over there reading about your partner's red-neck brawling night.

Lil Sis: You can sleep with my wife, but there's a fee attached. Gotta do something to pay for winter heating oil.
