I recently received one of those forwarded emails that had probably been around the world a couple of times. You know the ones I’m talking about. The kind that one person sends out with the request to keep it going. And unless you send to fifteen others in the next five minutes your toes will rot off and your teeth fall out. lol Anyway, I got this one about kids and their views of love and marriage and I had to share. No, I didn’t forward to anyone and so far I still have all my toes and teeth. I just laughed and enjoyed looking into the minds of small children. Some are pretty wise. Might use them for a consultation to see how my hero and heroine are supposed to act.
How do you decide who to marry?
One girl said, “No person really decides before they grow up. God decides it all way before and you get to to find out later who you’re stuck with.”
A boy said, “You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports and she should keep the chips and dip coming.”
What is the right age to get married?
“Twenty-three is the best age because you know the person FOREVER by then.”
What do most people do on a date?
“On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.” (Too funny!)
What would you do on a first date that was turning sour?
“I’d run home and play dead. The next day I would call all the newspapers and make sure they wrote about me in all the dead columns.”
When is it okay to kiss someone?
“The rule goes like this: If you kiss someone, then you should marry them and have kids with them. It’s the right thing to do.”
Is it better to be single or married?
“It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.”
How would the world be different if people didn’t get married?
“There would sure be a lot of kids to explain, wouldn’t there?”
How would you make a marriage work?
“Tell your wife that she looks pretty, even if she looks like a dump truck.”
One thing for sure, children are honest. And hilarious! I’m always amazed by what they say. If you’re feeling down sometime, just talk to a child and pretty soon you’ll be laughing. As for forwarding the email, I consider that my luck should be awfully good seeing that I’ve managed to send it to every one of you who reads this today. Just using my noggin. Now, you have to worry about your toes rotting off and teeth falling out! Hope you’ve learned a few things today. Kids and romance are something else.
