A few more for your enjoyment!
Driving in the car today, Sanford and I were picking on Jessica. We told her we needed to get her one of the those shock collars so that she'd do her chores and behave. She told us that she had disposable thumbs so she could just take the collar off and not wear it.
A Farmer She Is Not
Jessica has been harrassing us to get her a bottle fed calf. We finally told her that if she could answer this ONE question, we'd think about getting her a calf. This is the question we asked her- If a steer had a calf and didn't feed it, why didn't it feed it? Jessica's initial response- "Because it didn't want to." We wait patiently for a week for her to give us an answer, but she never does and we think she's dropped the idea until she brings it up again. So we ask her if she's figured out the answer to the question. She says, "Noooo." So we tell her she can phone a friend to help. She calls her cousin Courtney. You can hear her on the phone. I tell her to make sure she repeats the question exactly as we asked it. She asks her cousin, "so...if a steer has a calf why doesn't it feed it?" And then there is dead silence for about 30 seconds and then you hear Jessica errupt from the back seat, "I HATE you guys!!!!" LOL! I bet she'll never forget that a steer is a neutered bull.
Julia Child She Is Not
Jessica decided one day to make dinner. The one meal that she can make besides Ramen is Taco Salad. Sanford came in to find that she was stabbing some meat that she'd taken out of the microwave. When asked what she was doing, she tells him she was trying to crumble the hamburger. Sanford hated to inform her that she was stabbing a roast instead of a pkg of hamburger. He had to pull out a pkg of hamburger for her and put the half thawed roast in the slow cooker for dinner the next day.
