A funny...

So... I don't usually share home life on here. But ocassionally I do just to break up the monotony. :) If you don't want to hear about it, just skip this post and come back tomorrow. I should have something crafty to post by then. Currently having technical camera and computer issues so thats why my craft posts have stopped. (I am so tech challenged its almost a crime for me to even have a blog.)But its fun, so I'll continue for a bit.

Anyways. My funny story while eating dinner last night. (He had a cheeseburger)

Jaryd asked me how many years he has to go to college. So I told him that depends on what he wants to be when he grows up. So he said a spy. (Hey, he's 10!) So I explained that you don't really go to "college" for that. But if thats what he's truly wanting to be, he should plan on taking alot of math and computer classes.
Okay, he quickly drops the spy thing.

Then it was fine, I'll stay home and watch the dogs and play video games... Uh, no child. You will not. You will have to get a job and WORK to pay bills and rent etc. Its how the world works. So really, you have to go through some college. Unless you want to be something like a gas attendant or stock shelves at a store. He totally rebuffed the gas attendant because of the smell. LOL! But didn't throw out stocking shelves immediately.

I said, what about a fireman? That was a huge no. He thought that I was incredibly mean to even suggest sending him into a place that was intensely hot. (He wanted to be a policeman earlier so I just jumped from that to a fireman, but now he thinks I want him to roast his buns apparently.)

SO a commercial comes on and I catch a glimpse of it. A cowboy riding the range... So I said, "hey! How bout' being a cowboy and working on a farm?" He looks at me like I've quite possibly lost my mind and asks "what would I do on a farm that could make money mom?!" And I said "Well, you can grow crops. Or raise cows." "Why would I raise cows?" he demands, still looking at me like I'm a moron. And I said "to sale it for the meat." He drops his cheeseburger down on the plate absolutely disgusted with me and my idea and said "Who in the world would eat meat from a COW?!" Um, yeah... I laughed so hard I had tears. I didn't say another word about it. If I had, he wouldn't have ate his dinner and I risked him forever being vegetarian.
