    My mom is a 54 year old elementary school teacher (grade 1) and over the last year, she's lost over 50 pounds. IMO, she looks at least ten years younger, so much better, etc. One of her students from last year who knew her before she lost the weight came up to her a few days ago and said "Mrs. _____, please don't lose any more weight...you're beautiful just the way you are."


    Man. Aren't kids AWESOME? It's little buggers like that that make me want to (eventually, not for a decade or two) become a father.

    Yes, well, whenever I see an old veteran (identifiable by their hats) I always thank them. Getting a thank you from a complete stranger usually makes their day.

  10. Out of the mouth of babes!!!!

    In an unrelated kid story, my 9 year old nephew was listening to the radio in the car with us when Marilyn Manson's "the beautiful people" comes on. My nephew Say's "this is the stupidest song ever!!! Why would anyone play a song about a Meatball???"

    Huh? What do you mean?

    "listen to the words. The beautiful Meatball, the beautiful Meatball."

    We laughed so hard we almost drove off the road!!!

    "your right Zach, its a stupid song"

    Stupid meatballs!!!!
