There ARE trick questions!

there are trick questions
...including the ones your kids ask you after school.

J--almost 9: does soap have wine alcohol in it?

Me: no, it has rubbing alcohol ...sometimes

J: is it the same that you can get drunk from?

Me: no, it is not

J: is it poisonous?

Me: yes, and you should never drink rubbing alcohol

J: so you could die from it?

Me: I suppose.

J: Mom, remember when you use to put soap in our mouths.

Me: ummmmm...Jeremy, you know I wasn't trying to kill you.

J---ALMOST 9: sure Mom

[at least he doesn't know enough to turn me in to DCFS yet,
...or does he?]

on marriage

'Will you, um, marry me?' I haven't seen you in weeks! You don't look happy or excited about the prospect of our marriage! You're asking me to give up my - my freedom, my joie de vivre for an institution that fails as often as it succeeds? And why should I marry you anyway? I mean, why do you wanna marry me? Besides some bourgeois desire to fulfill an ideal that society embeds in us from an early age to promote a consumer capitalist agenda?
