"I know what I'm going to do when I grow up. I'm going to be like Mitt Romney! I'm going to make a lot of money, and then go into politics," one of my children said to me.
"Don't talk like that," I said.
"Yes! I'm going to be just like Mitt Romney," the child continued.
Covering my ears with my hands, I said, "LA LA LA I CAN'T HEAR YOU."
The child went on, ignoring me, sensibly enough. "Once I have a lot of money, I'll run for senator. Or governor."
"That didn't work out so well for Meg Whitman," I said.
"I'll be a better politician than that."
Talking to the other child is a bit cheerier, but also can be draining. This second child ran up the stairs and burst into the room. "I just realized what I just said, and it was weird," the child marveled, a propos of nothing.
that is not what i said. people should not judge my intelligence based on this slander...
That's right, you can always disavow previous statements ala mittens.
