#WQWWC – Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge – “Innocence”
by Silver Threading
Hey, EVERYBODY! It’s that time again! Time to join in the “Writers Quote Wednesday Writing Challenge,” co-sponsored with Ronovan Hester of Ronovan Writes, right here on silverthreading.com and myself, Silver Threading!
Last Thursday evening Dom and I had the unusual pleasure of babysitting our grandchildren on a “school night”. We did all the things grandparents do to try and make a school night visit special. We made pizza, had strawberry shortcake, and rented a movie. We even allowed them to play in Dom’s 20 year old sport’s car that is stored in the garage.
The next morning started with a laugh from a very a very early breakfast conversation. Dom had left for the gym which is what he does every day. Lucas asked me why Pop Pop goes to the gym every day. I replied that Pop Pop likes to stay fit because a long time ago he was fat and he decided he would never be fat again. I said, ” Lucas you should ask Pop Pop to show you his picture from those days when he was fat.”
Well Lucas looked at me in horror and replied, “I don’t think so MeMe.” “I think that would be too disturbing for me to see.”
I think I am still chuckling over the thought of Dom’s old pictures being rated PG.
Like old Art Linkletter used to say, “kids say the darndest things”.
