“May have been the losing side. Still not convinced it was the wrong one.”


"This report is maybe 12-years-old. Parliament buried it, and it stayed buried till River dug it up. This is what they feared she knew. And they were right to fear because there's a whole universe of folk who are gonna know it, too. They're gonna see it. Somebody has to speak for these people. You all got on this boat for different reasons, but you all come to the same place. So now I'm asking more of you than I have before. Maybe all. Sure as I know anything I know this, they will try again. Maybe on another world, maybe on this very ground swept clean. A year from now, 10, they'll swing back to the belief that they can make people . . . better. And I do not hold to that. So no more running. I aim to misbehave." ~ Captain Malcom Reynolds

The boy's memory is way too good...

So sitting at dinner tonight, somehow my son starts talking about "house rules." And then pops out with "And we all know what house rule #3 is," as he starts laughing in that four-year old way.

To which my wife & I, both already knowing it won't be simple, ask for a reminder on what "House Rule #3" might be...

"No peeing on the cat!" is delivered with glee, whereupon he almost collapses in his chair giggling.

*sigh*

I can't decide which is worse. The fact that he remembered the prior discussion amongst his parents and other adults relating a humorous event, or the fact that my son is not the culprit that rule was made for...

Apparently the Cat has a very long memory as well...

And remember the nights we'd sit and eat dinner and watch a movie? Without single reference to bodily functions even entering into conversation? Just enjoying a good meal, a good movie and each others company? Remember? Or did I just dream all of that up?
