Why I Need to Become a Better Liar

This writing strike has been hard on our TiVo. The NetFlix gets used up faster, and Saturday night we found ourselves woefully movie-less. Luckily, we have a Blockbuster right on the corner. David crossed the parking lot to the supermarket while Jarrah and I perused the New Releases.

Jarrah spotted this giant poster, featuring Seth Rogen for Knocked Up:

Jarrah: (pointing) Wha' happened?

Sam: (scanning shelves with one eye) Oh, he's...sad.

Jarrah: Why he SAD?

Sam: Well, not really sad. He's worried.

Jarrah: WORRIED? Why he worried?

Sam: Well, he's....he's going to be a daddy.

Jarrah: HE GOING TO BE DADDY? WHA' HAPPENED?

Sam: Wellllllllll...he met a girl and...well...he just thinks he's too young to be a daddy.

Jarrah: TOO YOUNG TO BE DADDY? WHY?

Sam: Well...being a Daddy...it's hard...and a lot of work...so he's worried.

Jarrah: WHY HE WORRIED???

Sam: Because he's too young.

Jarrah: HOW HE BE TOO YOUNG TO BE DADDY?

Sam: He just THINKS he's too young.

Jarrah: THINKS? WHY?

Sam: Say! Isn't that Baby Shrek in the stuffed animal bin? Why don't you carry him around and talk to him? I bet he'd love that.

Jarrah: Baby Shrek! He too young!

This story is equally hilarious in print! It was so fun to see you on Oscar night. Thanks for hosting the party of the year. Wolfgang Puck, eat your heart out!

I always thought this "let's just be completely honest with the kids" thing was a crock!!!

That Jarrah is as smart & dedicated as her mom, I'd say.

Gina & I are looking forward to our picnic. :)
