Out of the mouths of babes...


Kids are so sweet and innocent - and the things they say so true! I got a gift certificate to a very nice clothing store where I bought a very sharp and expensive Columbia hooded sweatshirt. I bought a bright color (orange) a bit outside my normal comfort zone because I thought it might cheer me up and to tell the truth I thought it was slimming... So it was cold and rainy today and I thought I'd wear my cool, slimming new hooded sweatshirt. I walked into the living room, feeling great but all that soon changed when 2 year old Lily pointed at me a remarked, "Grandpa, are you a pumpkin?"
Anyone want a used orange sweatshirt?

not just babes....
years ago I wore this purple top and purple pant to work. A co-worker said how much I looked like
BARNEY and his daughter would love to see me! I never wore that again.....

Very funny Chris! I like your story - but you are supposed to tell me how good the sweatshirt really looks and how I shouldn't take Lily's comments to heart ;)
