Out of the Mouth of Tweens...

Gwen and Richard came into town yesterday to attend the Cantata performance last night.  They were having dinner with us tonight, and Gwen and I were reminiscing about some things from our childhood.

Gwen: "Do you remember that white chest of drawers we had when we were younger?"

Anita: "Oh, you mean the one that you guys put a mattress on and used as a bed?"

Gwen: "Yeah, only sometimes we'd take the mattress off and put soap and water all over it and skate around in it.  There was this nail sticking out of the wall, so you had to be careful.  If you were going too fast and hit it, it really hurt."

Anita: "You know, sometimes you just have to look back at some of the things we did and wonder..."

(Then Olivia butts in)

Olivia: "Were we smart?"

Actually, I was GOING to say " we survived."  Smarts ain't got nuthin' to do with it.
