Yesterday Noah and I were sitting outside together watching a hawk circling overhead.
Me: Wow. He sure is beautiful.
Noah: (staring thoughtfully at the hawk) He sure is.
Me: I wonder what he is circling.
Noah: I don’t know. (a dreamy look in his eyes) Wouldn’t it be cool to come back as a bird?
Me: Sure would.
Noah: (insightfully) I would want to know all that I know as a person, but be a bird.
Me: (Smiling proudly at how deep my thirteen year old son could be) That would be great.
Noah: Yeah. Then I could poop on everyone.
I have been nominated for a Babble Award. Wowsers. If you are so inclined, click this link and give me a “like”. It’s good Karma, so buy a lottery ticket afterwards. (I don’t really have that kind of karmic pull. But? It is good Karma and maybe luck will be on your side.)
