Dinner Conversations

Kathleen asked Brandon to sing the "Trogdor" song.  After he sang it for her, she declared that she was going to pretend that her food was the peasants in their thatch-roofed cottages, and destroy them.

When Brandon was telling the story of Alexander the Great, he mentioned Athens.  Sophia, when she heard Athens, exclaimed excitedly, "We visited Athens!  It has a Sofitel!"

Kathleen, after exhausting Brandon's childhood stories, asked for other stories.  So Brandon told her the story of Vlad the Impaler.

I cook the food, but I take no personal responsibility for the conversation.

Yes, I have happy memories of such conversations around our dinner table, too... Vlad the Impaler??!!

It's probably a good thing Kathleen is home schooled. Telling stores like that in public kindergarten might bring social services to your door!
