Bedtime conversations

Monday night:

A: Hey! You know what I forgot to do?

D: What?

A: Get my ribbon out and dance around the maypole!

D: The huh? What are you talking about?

A: Today was May Day.

D: Um, what the heck is a "may day?"

A: It is a holiday - you know, with the ribbons and the poles. May Day.

D: No, 'mayday' is a distress signal, like when your plane is going down or your ship is sinking.

Tuesday night:

A: What did you get me?

D: Nothing. Why?

A: Today is my half-birthday! I am twenty-seven-and-a-half years old!

D: Whatever!

*seeing my serious look*

D: Oh, well then, Happy.

Ha! I can totally see you and Daniel having that first conversation.

And does he STILL not know the importance of a 1/2 birthday in our family? Sheesh...

Yeah, I wasn't gonna burst your bubble about May Day and I won't burst Bella's love for Ring-Around-The-Rosey.

We'll let everyone investigate for themselves :)
