Rootin' Hootin' and Tootin'...

Spent the weekend with the gal pal (always a treat)... we went and saw the movie "Soul Surfer" which is based on the true story of the teenage surfer in Hawaii who had her arm chewed off by a shark and how she came back and surfed again. A very moving story if ever there was one. Both me and the gal pal enjoyed it immensely. Had a nice dinner afterwards and what dinner and movie date would be complete without the obligatory trip to Wal-Mart? I love that place!
After spending a fantastic weekend with her, I made the long trek home. I stopped for a bite (read: a couple of Coneys at Gold Star Chili) and both there and Skyline Chili are always a treat and worth stopping for because their are no locations anywhere near my town... I went in and placed my order and could hear a family sitting at a table just being themselves and talking over each other. As I grabbed my food and was leaving I heard the following between two sisters who appeared to be ages 12 and 9...

12 year old: "you're being a pain, you are making a mess!"
9 year old: "I am NOT"
12 year old: "Yes you ARE. You've spilled it all over the table"
Mom: "Girls, come on now"
12 year old: "Why can't you just stop it"
9 year old: "It's all because you FARTED!!"
12 year old: ... (complete silence) ...

You can't make stuff like this up...

Nothing unreal or stylized about your average 9 year old....

And spending time with your love...well, we all know it is your very favorite thing.
