Rechargeable Pet Rock
The other day, as I was typing at my computer, my eleven-year-old son came up behind me. He stooped down in front of the hard drive and plugged something in to one of the ports.
I stopped typing, and looked. "Dude, what the heck is that?"
He grinned. "That is my pet rock, and it's getting a sun tan."
I took a closer look. It was indeed a rock. And it had a cable attached to it, that plugged into a computer. "Are you kidding?" I asked. "Did you make that?"
He laughed. "No, Mama. That's the way it came. It's my birthday present from Uncle R."
Uncle R. The other goofball in the family.
I shook my head. "What is the point of the cable? Does it do anything?"
"Of course it does, Mama. When the pet rock naps, it recharges. Even rocks have to recharge once in a while!"
Now, for something a little different: A couple of days ago, Jacquelineand, one of my blog followers, had a question. She wanted to know what Bubba would do with three uninhabited Earths. My boy has a wild imagination, so I figured his answer would be good. When he came home from school, I posed the question. Without missing a beat, he said. "Since the planets are uninhabited, I would mine them for their natural resources. Then I'd come back to this Earth, and sell them. That would make me a trillionaire."
I'm telling you, the kid is a genius!
If you have any burning questions for Bubba, please write them in the comment section. I'll see if I can get some answers from him. I'm sure they'll be entertaining.
