Bubba for President

My son's political career has begun.

"Mama," he said when he got off the bus yesterday.  "I have to write a speech."

"Oh yeah?" I asked.  "What for?"

"I'm running for student council."

"I see.  That's terrific!  What are you going to say in your speech?"

He thought about that for a second.  "I'm going to say that everyone needs to eat pie.  And I'm going to give everyone free pie!"

Great.  With a promise like that, I'm sure he'll be elected President.  I'd better get in the kitchen and start baking!

  12. Yes, Bubba knows Mama can bake pies and he's already counting up the votes he'll get. One of our sons mentioned he might become a politician someday. But he said the trouble with that plan is you can' t do anything wrong in your whole life!

  15. If you need anyone to go undercover, pose as a student, and help cast a few more votes in Bubba's favor, I'll easily sell my integrity for pie.

    How do you do, fellow kids?
