I had a fantastic conversation the other day. I was outside weeding the garden when a young boy on his bike rode up to me and said :
Boy - "What are you doing!?"
Me - " Weeding."
Boy - "Weeding?"
Me - "Taking the bad plants out and leaving in the good plants."
Boy - "Oh........Are you a mom?"
Me - "No I am not."
Boy - "Your not!? Well where are your kids!?"
Me - "I don't have any kids."
Boy - (Sounding a bit terrified) "Are your kids lost!!??"
Me - "No I don't have any kids."
Boy - "Oh..........well you should go buy some."
Me - (Trying really hard not to laugh at this point) "Ok, where should I go to buy some kids?"
Boy - "Ummm, you can just go to the store. You can buy some kids at the store."
He then lapsed into something nonsensical and I could not stop my self from laughing. I must admit it is probably the best conversation I have had in some time.
Oh and I looked for the aisle in target with the kids and I still haven't found it. ;)
