Paper Scarecrow

Filed under: politics — Tags: , , — edge of the sandbox @ 8:48 pm

In honor of Senate’s ratification of Obama’s nuclear treaty with Russia, it’s time to recall a lovely conversation I had with my daughter, then three.

Me: What animal are you?

Her: I’m a froggy!

Me: What animal is your brother?

Her: Oh, he’s a kitty!

Me: What animal is daddy?

Her: He’s a kitty too.

Me: What animal is mommy?

Her: Mommy is a scarecrow.

Hmmm… is it because I told her not to band on the window with her magic wand? Does she even know what a scarecrow is?

Me: What animal is the President?

Her: The President?  He’s… he’s… paper scarecrow!
