Focus is a Bonus

Bones was sick home from school yesterday. He and I were sitting at the kitchen table. I was doing paperwork and he was sitting there nibbling on part of a doughnut.

Out of the blue he said to me, ‘Mom, do Virgos fart?’


Well, I’m a Virgo. And although he suspects I do not… TGOO is a Virgo and Bones KNOWS he farts.

So I looked up and stared and finally said, “What?”

And he repeated his question, “What do Vultures eat?”


This is what happens when my kids ask me questions when I am deep in thought…

Good call on asking "what". !!

Ah yes, the "do they fart" questions. I heard my seven year old ask his older brother (10 yrs) if frogs fart. My older replied very matter-of-factly, "Of course not! If they did then water would get into their butts and they would sink and drown."
