Scene: After soccer game. Busy parking lot. Parked next to a SUV so it's hard to see around it as I back up.
Me: Kids, I need your help. Tell me if you see any cars coming.
Vance: (Looking in wrong direction) No cars!
Me: No, Vance, look the other way.
Vaughn: I see shooting stars!
Me: I don't even know why I asked.
Dinner conversation was lacking last night so I started asking the kids hypothetical questions.
Q: If you had to choose one type of soup to eat for the rest of your life what would it be?
Vance: tomato soup
Vaughn: Joe's O's
Q: Would you rather live in hot weather or cold weather for the rest of your life?
Vance: Cold weather. Because we could drink hot chocolate.
Vaughn: She was leaning towards hot, but jumped on the cold bandwagon once hot chocolate was mentioned.
Q: Would you rather be a bird or a fish?
Vance: Fish. No, bird.
Q: You get one song to listen to for the rest of your life. What would it be?
Vance: Slow Ride. No, wait...Christmas music!
Vaughn: Ariel's song.
We break here to sing Slow Ride, Christmas songs, and Vaughn starts singing a made up song that goes on and on and on about a beautiful flower.
Q: Vaughn, what's your middle name?
Vaughn: Chocolate. Vaughnie Chocolate.
Me: No, it's not. It is now though.
