The Origin of Things

13 Dec

Over the weekend Jordan, the kids and I drove down to Dallas to visit Jordan’s Grandmother.  (Well, she lives in Pilot Point, TX…but who’s heard of that?)  Anywho, per our usual, we ended up at the Stonebriar Centre Mall in Frisco which is ridiculously enormous and full of spoiled teenagers spending daddy’s money.  It’s more fun than a barrel full of monkeys.  (Don’t get me wrong, though.  The mall is amazing.)

The kids were excited about going to Build-A-Bear workshop and I was excited about walking through Williams & Sonoma.  ([sigh]  They have the most amazing vegetable peelers in existence.)  After circling the parking lot a few times, we actually managed to find a spot not too far from the entrance of Nordstrom’s.  A small miracle considering the mall and the time of year.  We all bounded out of the car and made a bee-line for the door.  It wasn’t too cold outside, but the 30 MPH wind made for a good motivator to get inside.  It was odd…it hadn’t been this windy when we’d eating lunch just a few minutes before.  Perplexed, I exclaimed out loud:

“Where is all this wind coming from?”

To which Jaden replied:

“Mmm….probably from Hell.”

Because that’s where all wind comes from?  I cannot honestly imagine where she gets these one-liners.  All that I know is that they are down-right hilarious.  Of course, once she saw that Hell was funny, everything for the rest of the day was somehow related to Hell.  We had a hellaciously great day at the mall.  ;]

I just hope that one of her friends doesn’t ask her where babies come from.  [wink]
