Giving thanks at the table, my daughter says
"Take care of the endangered animals, and the poor, sick, and hungry"
Suddenly the table is shaking, I look up, and my husband is giggling at the other end. I am thinking to myself...hmmmm, I wonder when the poor, sick, and hungry became comedy...although in these times, it could have just been a maniacal, we are going there soon, laugh... but no, it was slowly turning into a guffaw.
My girls quizzically looking at Jamie and then to me, because, they were thinking...if that was me you would be stepping on my foot under the table...HARD.
I gave the big eyed, motherly, wifely, "knock it off" look, and Jamie said:
"I am pretty sure that she didn't say this, but I heard 'Take care of the Indians and Camels, and the poor, sick, and hungry.' I was just wondering what was wrong with the camels."
So it isn't just my kids...its our hard of hearing old age too....
