Quality Family Time is Important

You know what we do for fun at my house? We play Fox News Channel vs. The Kids. By "The Kids", I mean my kids, Mina (5 1/2) and Audrey (2 1/2).

For dinner, I served Baked chicken, broccoli and raspberries.

Mina: I like broccoli. Broccoli makes you smart.

Me: That's true.

Mina: And broccoli makes you walk faster.

Me: That hasn't been proven. Can you back that up with facts?

Mina: It's true.

Me: Why? Because you say it's true? Don't spout your lefty propaganda around here.

Mina: What's "ganda"?

Husband: Next you'll try and tell me carrots have feelings.

Audrey: Carrots are good!

Me: No need for ad hominem attacks here, little missy.

Husband: It's a strawman argument.

Mina: The strawman is in the Wizard of Oz.

Me: Frank Baum was a Communist.

Husband: Pinko Commie, just like the rest of the drive-by media.

Mina: Pink is my favorite color!

Me: Mina, why do you hate America?

Hilarious stuff, though not quite as reactionary as Sean In-sanity.

Mina has taste.

I like stuff and things. I've been married for close to 14 years and have two miniature versions of myself running around (and it frightens me most of the time). I have never been nor will I ever be a vegetarian.
