Rachel: Mommy, you know that Beneful dog food commercial.
Rachel: Well, if you eat Beneful dog food will you turn into a dog.
Beth: (trying to hold back laughter) No honey.
Rachel: Even if you are a baby? Will you turn into a dog?
Beth: No Rachel. It doesn’t matter what you eat you will still stay a person.
Rachel. Oh, because that Beneful food sure does look like people food.
This showed up in one of the listserv posts Friday and had to share with the blogosphere.
Turn on the radio, but do not tune it. Leave it on static and fuzz. Turn it up. Ask someone to turn the lights on and off. Strap yourself into a broken chair that is missing a leg and use a table that is off-balance–you know the ones in restaurants that make us all so mad. Now, put on some scratchy lace in place of a comfortable T-shirt, put your pants on backwards, and wear shoes one size too small. Pour a bowl of grated parmesan cheese, open a can of sardines, and bring the cat box to the table. Now, snack on your least favorite food, the one you never eat because it comes with a gag reflex.
With all this in place, pick up a book and learn something new.
