And now, for something funny said by Brilyn:
B: "Mommy, why is the pizza on the counter?"
M: "It's just the box, the pizza is in the fridge."
B: "Oh, so it's just chillin'?"
M: "Yeah, babe." (smiling)
B: "Like a villain?"

Chillin like a villain. Cute.

And, now, a joke I read via email:

"So, I was talking to this little girl Catherine, the daughter of some
friends, and she said she wanted to be President some day. Both of her
parents, liberal Democrats, were standing there with us - and I asked
Catherine - 'If you were President what would be the first thing you
would do?'

Catherine replied - 'I would give houses to all the homeless

'Wow - what a worthy goal you have there, Catherine.' I told
her,'You don't have to wait until you're President to help the homeless,
you can come over to my house and clean up all the dog poop in my back
yard and I will pay you $5 dollars. Then we can go over to the grocery store
where the homeless guy hangs out, and you can give him the $5 dollars to
use toward a new house.'

Catherine (who was about 5) thought that over for a second, and replied, 'Why doesn't the homeless guy come over and clean up the dog poop, and you can just pay him the $5 dollars?'

And I said, 'Welcome to the Republican Party'."

Chillin' like a villain. Sweet. And the Republican joke was funny, too. I'll check the calendar for the corn roast. Sounds like a blast. Kids or no kids? And will you tell if I have a little grown-up cider?

Corn roast is kid friendly, and I cross my heart and hope to die that I wouldn't breathe a word about the grown-up cider. I've been known to treat my unborns to a nip of this or that.

I was just stopping by, you make that Corn Roast sound really good but its probably too far away for me, and I liked the joke too.
