It's All In Your Perspective

Overheard in the (now demo'd) kitchen while making lunches together yesterday:

Shaggy:  I am working on a project for World History. I have to research and write an essay on three people groups that have migrated.

Momma:  Are you going to write about the Irish? When they left Ireland in droves because of the potato famine and English grip of territorial land control?

Dr. D, lighting up and shouting out:  Oh! Wait, you can write about the Colts when they migrated from Baltimore.  Or, the Cardinals when they left Chicago.  Oooh, yeah. The Rams, when they picked up and moved out of St. Louis.

Shaggy:  Yeah. No. I don't think that's really what my WORLD HISTORY teacher had in mind.

I love having these two home all day with me!
If nothing else, we sure laugh together a lot.

I am laughing already!!!

My sons would have said the same exact thing as Dr. D...in fact, they still would, even though they are 22 & 24 years old!! lol

You mean when the Evil Colts left Baltimore IN THE DEAD OF NIGHT? When the moving vans pulled up at 2 AM because MANAGEMENT was TOO COWARDLY to tell the people of Baltimore what they were doing? Do you mean THEN? Because THAT would be a paper.

(And no, I'm totally not bitter or anything.)
