Years ago, I took my parents to Jackson Hole along with my daughter. The conversation in the vehicle included some restaurants in that town possibly serving exotic meat because of their location and tourist trade.

We stopped at a small restaurant in Pinedale for lunch. While we were reading the menu, my daughter — old enough to read but too young to know the difference — said, “Oh, look. They serve lion’s “meat” on Tuesdays and Thursdays!” Sure enough, she was reading a sign on the wall that said “Lions Meet Tuesdays and Thursdays.”

My daughter was telling her young son he has two great-grandmas. He thought about that for a moment and said, “I have good grandmas, but I don’t have any great grandmas.” (Guess I better pick up my game.)

One morning before school, my dad took my younger brother and me to the local doughnut shop for breakfast. It happened to be my dad’s birthday, so I asked him how old he was. He said he was 38. My brother, who was 4 years old at the time, loudly exclaimed, “Wow, Dad! You should be dead!”

When my son was 2, I surprised him with a new pair of shoes. While getting dressed for the day, I showed them to him. Holding the new shoes in one hand and the old shoes in the other hand, I said, “Look! I bought you some new shoes. You now have options. Which ones do you want to wear?”

He pointed to the new shoes and said, “I want to wear options!”
