Sometimes, Mini-Me cracks me up when I least expect it. It’s one of the reasons why he was voted “Best Kid Ever” 8 years in a row. By me, anyway…..
He and I were went out yesterday for a healthy dinner at “Cheeburger Cheeburger” and while he was sipping his “Oreo/Smores Milkshake”, the following conversation took place…
Mini: Daddy, today in school we learned about Biographies!
Studly: That’s cool. Did you learn about anyone in particular?
Mini: Yup, we learned all about Louis Braille.
Studly: Louis Braille? I’ve heard of him. So, what did you learn about him?
Mini: Well, he was a very important man, who lived a long time ago. He died in the 1850’s.
Studly: That sounds about right. But, what is he famous for?
Mini: He invented dots!!
At that, I nearly choked on my own zero-calorie “Peppermint Patty/Hot Fudge Milkshake” with laughter.
My little man can get me when I least expect it like no other.
p.s. Afterwards, when I asked him what else he knew about Louise Braille, he told me that he was pretty sure that he died by getting hit by a bus. Now admittedly, I’ve never been a history buff, but I’m FAIRLY certain that Greyhound wasn’t around back then. So unless this dude ALSO invented a time machine, I’m calling bullshit on that one.
