Every day, twice a day, M and I have a conversation that takes place in many households all over the world. It goes something like this:
“So, what do you want for lunch?”
“I dunno, what do you want?”
“I dunno, wanna go out?”
“Mebbe, but where would we go?”
Go on, admit you’ve had that conversation at least once this week if not fourteen times.
But everything’s ok now. We had a child and she apparently has all the answers. I overheard the following while on the phone with M this morning. We were having the above mentioned exchange when C decided to give him her 2 cents.
“Daddy! Daddy! I needa gettina cah! I needa go to Old McDonalds*!”
And there you have it people. The answer to the age old question about where to go for your next meal. Of course, it could also just be an indication that we need to start working on our dining options….
*My child, like most of the children I’ve heard about, confuses McDonalds with Old MacDonald of childhood ditty fame. Not really surprising she’s terrified of clowns, those are some pretty strange images to mix together.
