Greatest Job Ever!!!

I recently took a (part time) job at the airport. I was trying to explain to the kids what I will be doing at work. The airport is small so some of my duties are on the Tarmac.

Me: I'm the lady at the counter who checks you in when you are going on a big trip. I might also be the lady who looks at your ticket and lets you board the plane. Some days I will get to help direct passengers to the terminal or to the plane.  

Schatz: Anything else?

Me: Maybe if I do a REALLY good job they will let me drive the little car that pulls the luggage. That would be cool!

Schatz (clearly excited about my prospects):  That would be so cool! Do you know the only thing that would be cooler?

Me: ...if they let me fly the plane?

Schatz (wrinkling her nose):   No. Not that. The only thing cooler would be if they let you be the lady with the SNACKS!  [the flight attendant]

Hide and Seek

We play Brain Quest from time to time when we find ourselves waiting somewhere.  Sometimes she gets on a roll and her answers are a little...outside the box.

Schatz:  The Hunger Games

She's a Carnivore...not a Vegetarian

After eating all the beef out of her "Rainbow Beef" (think sweet and sour beef) rice bowl...

Schatz:  I'm done.  Can I have some more of yours?

Dad:  Aren't you going to eat the rest?

Schatz:  No.  I don't like that stuff.

Dad (looking in the bowl):  You don't like green peppers? and pineapple? and rice?

Schatz (sighing deeply):  No.  I can't eat that stuff.  I'm not a vegetarian.
