my dad passed away and the boys were talking about heaven.

artist: i think heaven is like a party, with people talking and stuff.
football: i think it has lots of balloons cause that's where they end up when people let them go and that they serve cake to all the new people.

plus, a little gallow's humor. football was talking about cremation and called it disintegration instead. lol.

a little baseball family

artist told football that he wanted four more brothers to play baseball with - one for each base, a pitcher and a catcher. he'd even let them sleep in his room on the floor. :)

to exaggerate or to not exaggerate

my uncleinsurance is great at telling stories. they are 'tall tales' and they make you laugh. football was telling him about his baseball game and uncleinsurance was trying to help him make the story a bit more entertaining through exaggeration. football listened to him very seriously and nodded several times to show he was following along. when the lesson was over, football said 'thank you. but that's *not* what happened.' it made me smile because my son is such a truthful boy.

a happy sad

football asked 'why do all dogs look so sad?'
artist replied 'because they can't smile like we can.'

bizarrely, i think he might have gotten it right.
