Yesterday in the Momvan:
Mr. T: You know, if we had a swamp in our back yard, we could be really rich.
Me: How's that, buddy?
Mr. T: Well, we could take a bunch of dead animals and throw them in the swamp. Then they'd sink to the bottom and after hundreds of years they'd turn into fossils and people would buy them for coal and fuel.
Me: Presuming we live to be hundreds of years old, of course.
Mr. T: Yeah.
I don't think I need to worry about Mr. T getting sucked into a Ponzi scheme with his get-rich-slow plans!
In the aforementioned Momvan en route to karate lesson:
Me: Tomorrow is your hundredth day of kindergarten. I bet you're really excited.
Mr. B: I am! You know what we talked about today? What we'd do with a hundred dollars. What would you do with a hundred dollars, Mom?
Me: I'd spend it taking you guys to a movie, bowling and then out to eat.
Mr. B: Cool. Do you know what I would do if I had a hundred dollars?
Mr. B: I'd buy a butler.
Me: (laughing) Why would you buy a butler?
Mr. B: Because then he'd have to do everything for us. He'd make us food, take us places in a limo, you know, just do everything we wanted.
Mr. B: We have a room--our butler could stay in the extra bedroom.
