Good taste in role models

L'Ailee called me up, about to wet her pants laughing at this exchange from her afternoon middle-school gymnastics class (a/k/a "Another Excuse to Get the Hormonal Yard-Apes Out of Your House").

Eleven-year-old girl blurts out to her: "I hope I'm like you when I grow up."
L'Ailee: "Thank you. But be careful what you wish for."
Girl thinks, then says: "Except I want to keep my hair long and marry a man. And no offense, but I hope my voice isn't as deep as yours."
L'Ailee: "Fair enough, dear."

I told her she should've taken the opportunity to tell her student not to start smoking, even though it's really being Siberian and from a family of deep-voiced women (I've talked to a few by phone) that blessed her with that sexy dark-chocolate contralto of hers.

I love kids that age. Don't know if I want one in my house, but they're fun for a few hours, 'cause their mental filter's just starting to get installed.

They'll call it like they see it, that's for sure!

Always wise words. Careful what you wish for!

Ahhh...they should wish to be exactly like her. No 'except' about it.

If you ever want to borrow a 6-year old with no filter - just call or find me on MBOL - I'll gladly drop her by for a few hours!
