Mr Practical

We had told the Things that when Dad got a job, we'd go out to celebrate.

Yesterday, we learned of two job offers (yeah, sometimes when it rains it pours and this is a good thing!)

Immediately, the younger Thing asked "so, when do we go out to celebrate?"

We reminded him, it is sort of bad luck to celebrate before the first paycheck arrives. In his usual thoughtful way, he said "yeah, that does make sense".

So, I asked him..."when we do go out, where do you think we should go?"

With a hesitant, cautious and serious look on his face, he said "Well, do you think we can swing Arby's?".

I looked to my hubby (who was working hard not to burst out laughing) and said "He gets THAT from you!".

So, hopefully in the not too distant future, we'll be celebrating with roast beef sandwiches!
