Kid1: Mom, math class was boring today. I already know the problems we're going over.
Me: Are you allowed to read or doodle if you finished your work?
Kid1: No! We have to pay attention to the teacher. I can't even write stories.
Me: That's too bad. But it is good practice for when you get a job and have to go to meetings.
Kid1: I don't want that kind of job.
Me: It might be unavoidable. Lots of jobs involve meetings.
Kid1: Well, I guess I can handle being bored as long as I don't have a job where I might blow up.
Kid1: You know, if I stepped in lava or something. Volcanologist is definitely off my list, unless I can study them on computers.
Me: I see.
Kid1: It's not like you can just get a little bit of lava on you. I bet if it gets on your foot, it affects your whole body.
Me: Yes, I bet it does. [[Like the bite of a zombie, perhaps?]]
Kid1: Mom, can I have a snack?
Maybe she can be a photographer instead. Here are some selections from the past couple months on the digital camera we got her for Xmas:
Taken in a commercial cave we toured.
Frocs -- a still life
Giant ball of cat hair after brushing cats at Grandma's House
Self portrait. Or maybe Kid2 took it. There was screaming involved.
Not sure. Maybe a cat?
Unfortunately, I am sure what this is, and it's a certain angle of a cat as well.
Hm. Photographer might be out too.
