Jack: (after eating a HUGE meal tonight) Sigh…food is pretty much the most important thing in life. (BURP!) Excuse me.
me: Hmm, really? What’s next on that list?
Jack: Then comes sleep.
Jack: Naps. (looks at me) It’s DIFFERENT than sleep!
me: Okay, fine. Next?
Jack: Trees of course!
me: Huh? Why?
Jack: Because oxygen. Helllooooooo….!
me: Oh, okay. We do have to breathe. What’s next?
me: I see a theme. What’s with all the “sleepy” important things? You’re always up at the crack of dawn. Sleep a little longer then!
Jack: Too much to do. Gotta catch the bus during the week and cartoons on the weekend. Sigh. The list is IMPORTANT things. Not exactly things I DO…sheesh…
me: Alright, settle down.
Jack: Tell me something I don’t know in the world.
me: Uhhh…(rapid thinking) When you get older, girls are gonna think you’re very handsome.
Jack: I said tell me something I DON’T know.
me: Okay. The definition of modesty.

I definitely agree on the importance of sleep!
Amazing how little of it I’ve had in the last 7 years. :O
At 35 I agree with his list completely.
He’s on to something, no doubt!
