After school, Kathleen was lobbying for a treat, claiming that since it was the last day of State testing today she deserved one. She thought we should get pastries at the store.
Jennifer responded that we need to get away from junk food.
Supporting my wife I reinforced: “Yes. We should resolve to eat better.”
“No,” Kathleen responded with a smile in her voice, “We should resolve to eat donuts.”
Quite frankly, I am surprised that Jennifer was not converted by this sly use of wordplay.
