For the beauty of the Earth, Mom, geez.

In anticipation of what was sure to occur on this Sabbath day, I took the following preemptive action.

Me (to Jade):  I think we should sit down and make a list of what would be appropriate Sunday activities.  Like drawing or writing letters or learning about our ancestors.

Jade:  What about going outside to play with Mallory?

Me (skeptical):  Explain to me how that is an appropriate Sunday activity.

Jade (In her best beauty-pageant-contestant voice):  Well, it would give me an opportunity to see the beauty that is all around us in this world.

Well played, Jade.
