CherkyB, Unlikely Parenting Hero

I was sitting in the hot tub with HannahC tonight while The Mrs. surfed the web and left snarky comments on everyone's blogs. Nobody beats The Mrs. and snarky commenting. Present company excluded, of course.

Anyways, HannahC suddenly jump out of the hot tub and says, "I want to see what that bug is!"

It's a big, giant roly-poly. HannahC then proceeds to wax warmly about all the fun she's going to have with her new pet. After a few minutes of listening to her go on about how she's going to play with it by holding it in her hand and petting it, I say this:
Me, CherkyB: "You know, HannahC, roly-polies don't understand 'playing'. All they understand is 'eat', 'sleep', and 'try not to get eaten'. They don't have brains. It's going to say, 'This isn't eating, this isn't sleeping, I better try not to get eaten.'"

HannahC: "They understand 'pooping,' too."
At this point I pretended to have gotten some spray from the jets in my eye, because I didn't want my daughter to see me cry. Even if they were tears of joy.

Later, inside:
HannahC: "Roly-polies must have brains. Otherwise how could they live?

Me, CherkyB: "Democrats live."

And again, I wonder: whatever happened to diversity?

CherkyB said... was covered in the previous post? The one called Diversity Corner #1.

Nava said...

Yeah, I know that. And yet, all the diversity tolerance has evaporated as though it had never happened, like dust in the wind.

Whoever said anything about tolerance?

Just think about what that means, anyway.

Hey--wikipedia does say it has been called the potato bug.

nice adsense!

You're going to have to be more specific. Everyone sees different AdSense depending on their location. Also, you get different AdSense if you look at the individual post vs. at the whole blog.

For instance, when I look at the blog, I see ads for fishing lures.
