What We Talk About While Packing Lunches

Happy NaBloPoMo Day 11.

ME: “wanna take some Cracker Jacks?”
JACK: “what’s the prize?”
ME: “you have to open it and see.”
JACK: “what if it’s just one extra Cracker Jack? That’d be lame. I’d get mad.”
ANDREW: “what if it’s a functioning kidney and you just happened to need a kidney transplant?”
ME: “it’d be bad if it was a functioning kidney, but you were waiting for a liver instead.”
JACK: “what if a mouse had gotten in there and died and it looked like he was the Cracker Jack prize.”
ME: (opening the Cracker Jacks) “dang, it’s not a dead rodent or a functioning organ! Just a stupid tattoo.”


This photo doesn’t go with the post at all, but it’s just so darn cute, I wanted to include it somewhere. It’s funny how you can snap the most precious photos at the most spontaneous, unrehearsed times. (In case you’re wondering…yes, James was wearing shorts.)

  1. Gosh. I can see you — and also Pamela’s boys in Jack’s smiling face. So cute. And yes, the packing of the lunch in the morning. I have gotten bad. I buy tons of prepackaged stuff — you know the small pack of Cheeze-Its and Smartfood. And just cram it in there. I do try and have some type of fruit. But it’s really a box full of preservatives.
