Ben’s been coming up with some doozies lately…here’s the latest…
Scene: Mom and three oldest boys weeding the garden and turning the soil over. Ben is on a roll, pulling out big weeds and making sure the roots come with them.
Mom: Wow, Ben! You’re doing a great job!
Ben: Yeah! I am really strong!
(pause, more weeding)
Ben: When I am really strong and pulling out weeds, I like to call myself Satan Boy.
Mom: Wha..Satan Boy?!
Ben: Yep! I like to call myself Satan Boy because I am pulling really hard on the weeds and they’re coming up!
(another pause, more weeding while Mom racks her brain for why he said that)
Ben: Or…who was that guy in the Bible who was really strong?
Ben: That’s right. I like to call myself Samson Boy.
OOOOOHHHHH. Well, O.K. then.
