Call me crazy, but I’d bet dollars to donuts that Athena knew exactly the right answers to all of these questions, but that those answers would not be the comedy gold that she gave instead. LMAO. Literally. My ass, it’s on the floor. *snort* So she got her sarcasm and wicked since of humor from you, and her looks from her mom, or is she simply your wife’s Mini Me? Meanwhile the Shovelians are using anti-entropic time travel to install Worthing B. “Toast” Burner in placed of Abe Lincoln so the North loses the Civil War, dividing America and leaving Earth’s petroleum deposits defenseless against our new Entrenching overlords who need gasoline to set themselves on fire to travel back in time in the first place.

Literally. My ass, it’s on the floor. I knew that she was just screwing around when she answered his question about what one should do when one finds oneself on fire. Well. That apple didn’t roll very far from the tree. I think maybe it’s dad that’s seen one too many snow days. The Shining, anyone? As a New Yorker who has not been out of the house in several days due to snow, I can’t say I noticed anything wrong with her answers. And how long did the two of you rehearse this little gem? WE ARE IMPROVISATORY GENIUSES I WILL HAVE YOU KNOW In before OHGAWD I FEAR FOR TEH FUTURES OF OUR CONTRAH111!111!!! Yes…mine are in KY and we may have school all June at this rate. Being home bound is making me crazier than them A friend linked this page on google +. Ha ha ha Drink gasoline when your on fire that is classic. I knew that she was just screwing around when she answered his question about what one should do when one finds oneself on fire. Either that or she’s suicidally depressed over her dad putting her on the Internet. I love that her expectation is… play. And that the father’s expectation is also — play.
