My Daughter Gets Her Wish. . .
On my last post, I reported that Heidi and Chad were going out to eat on Saturday in celebration of Heidi's birthday. They had done the same thing on Tuesday for Chad's birthday. Well. . . yesterday they phoned to tell me they had gone skydiving - dropping out of a plane at 13,000 feet! I guess they thought they should tell me after the deed was done! When I asked what would have happened had they both been killed, you know, like "Would I be taking care of Brian?", they responded, "No, Chad's father and sister get Brian if something happens to us." So, I inquired further with, "Well, what do I get then?" [I know, you're thinking that this is a dumb question - but you have to know our family to understand this humor (Is it humor, or are we just plain wicked?!)] To which they replied, "If we die together, you can have your dishes back," followed by lots of laughter.
Actually, they both loved it. I can't imagine doing that - - EVER!
