My eight-year-old son was sitting at the breakfast table this morning, gobbling up his eggs when he posed this question: "Mama, can a person eat a whole humpback whale?"
I looked at the kid. "No, Bubba. A whale is enormous. I don't even think a polar bear could do that."
"I bet I could," Bubba said. "Especially if there was a little bacon and butter on the side."
"Right, Bubba. But I bet it would take you more than a day to do it."
He finished his breakfast and got up. "I'm going fishing, now," he announced. "You should start making the bacon and butter."
Sure, kid. I'll get right on it!
Lovely to read, really cheering.ReplyDelete

LOL! This really did make me laugh out loud. That boy is a star in the making! :)ReplyDelete
He's a funny guy!Delete

I guess he was really hungry!Delete
He's determined, he is, but who wouldn't be, with bacon and butter involved?ReplyDelete
I think his cholesterol levels are going to have a serious spike after that meal!Delete
Wait till Bubba discovers how oily whales are! He might change his mind about the bacon and butter! He's so funny; a constant source of entertainment.ReplyDelete
My stomach is sick just thinking about it.Delete
Soon he'll be out renting a flatbed truckReplyDelete
Yeah. I can't wait to have a humpback whale dumped in my driveway!Delete
LOL! Love those boys with hollow legs and big imaginations! :)ReplyDelete
He certainly has quite an active imagination!Delete
I bet Bubba will bring something back from fishing, even if it's imaginary. lol.ReplyDelete
I'll take an imaginary whale over a real one!Delete
Lol! Too funny yet cute!ReplyDelete

LOL I love his confidence!ReplyDelete
He has no shortage of that!Delete
I could go fishing with him.ReplyDelete
Will you help him haul the whale out of the lake? ;)Delete
Lol..now I'm wondering how you're going to cook it. :)ReplyDelete
