1 minute with Baden



Posted by Picasa

Baden: Dad won't let me get on the erplane. (Coming out of Brian's office)

Me: Why do you need to get on the airlplane?
(at this point I start writing down because I know it's going to be good)

Baden: Cause I have to go to my chicken farm. I'm going to go outside.

Me: It's too cold to go outside.


Baden: I HAVE to go to work.

Me: No you don't.

Baden: I have to work so I can get money to pay for Georgia's (1 of 6 imaginary friends) house.

Me: Why do you have to pay for her house?

Baden: Because she losed her job on Christmas and she doesn't have any money, so I have to pay for her, and she has to go to high school.

Me: Ok, get your coat on then.

Baden: I have to take my gun cause there woofs (wolves) and bears. I need to call some phone calls.

Me: Why?

Baden: Cause I need some people to come and feed the chickens. Ok, so I gotta go now. (slams the door)

When I told Brian about this exchange, he said, "The recession is hitting imaginary people, how sad."

Baden always has the most interesting/funny/creative things to say during carpool. So glad you're writing the things he says at home down too. You don't want to forget these things.

Follow-up questions for Baden:

Where did Georgia work? I assume she/he was a day laborer, based on discussions I've had with Baden.

Why do you need to fly an erplane to the chicken farm? A pilot license has got to be more difficult for a 3 yr old to acquire than a regular DL.

How did Georgia manage high school, work and mortgage payments before you came along?

So many questions to ask . . .
