Trashy Shorts: Eat This, Not That

A few days ago, I was in my little office writing when I overheard this conversation coming from the kitchen:

"Dad," my kindergartener asked, "can I have a candy cane Hershey's Kiss?"

"How about," my husband replied, stretching out his voice to add suspense to the moment, "a slice of this delicious elk sausage instead?"  I heard the refrigerator door open and I could picture my husband punctuating his suggestion by holding the sausage roll high above his head triumphantly.

"Oh, yes!" my kindergartener said happily.  "That seems a FINE substitute for chocolate!"

He didn't really say that last part.  It was just a creative way for me to inject my own sarcastic thoughts--the ones I had while listening to the conversation--into the story.

I guess the hubs is trying to clean out the freezer.

  1. For a second there I thought you had a kd like my 2 yr old. She would LOVE Elk sausage! She's a big ole carnivore. My mom always has tons of sausage for her when we go there, she's in heaven :)
    Merry Christmas Shay!
