The hundred and one-th day of school
me: Hey, I didn’t realize today was the hundredth day of school…
Jack: Yeah, we did a fun packet of stuff and tomorrow is the celebration.
me: How come it’s not today?
Jack: I don’t know, they decided to do it on the hundred and one-th day of school…
me: Haha, one hundred and first.
Jack: (gives me an evil eye) When you correct me, that just SUCKS…(dramatic pause) my thumb!
me: (paused ready to reprimand) Hahahahaaaa! Okay Jack, you’re quick. But still, not a good word and I don’t like it. Clever though…
Jack: I’m your clever boy. Will you still be alive when I move into my first house?
me: I sure hope so.
Jack: (panic look)
me: I mean, of course!
Jack: I drew a picture in school of what I’ll look like when I’m 100. But I think it’s more what you’ll look like.
me: Totally flattering. Sheesh. But I have a crown on?
Jack: No that’s your old hair.
Jack: There’s one more paper I did in case I become president.
me: Okay, let’s see it.
Jack: I’ll read it! If I were president I would make sure people didn’t use land fills. This is important because it would keep the earth clean. I would go on TV and tell everybody not to use land fills. I could also travel around the world and tell everybody.
me: Wow, nice writing. But, no landfills? Where would the garbage go?
Jack: How the heck should I know. I’m not president yet. That’s Obama’s problem.
