After lunch today Hannah came into the room with a clip board, paper and a pen and asked me what I would like to order. I thought that she was talking about a meal and told her that I would like chicken fried steak. "No, what do you want to order online," she said. She then told me that I was going to order some kind of furniture. So I requested a dining room table with 8 chairs. A few minutes later she asked me if I would like to order a baby online too. "A baby doll," I asked. "No a real baby!" To which I said, "you can't order real babies online!" She informed me that today you could order a baby online. And the rest of the conversation went like this:
H - "So what color would you like it's skin to be?"
Me - "Our color, please."
H - "O.k., with freckles?"
Me - "Absolutely."
H - "What would you like it's name to be?"
Me - "Joshua"
H - "Uhm, no we don't have any Joshua's how about Lola...would you like a girl?"
Me - "Sure, girls are great."
H - "O.k. we were out of dining room tables so you got this couch and the bill is $10, and for the baby you have to give me $1."
As I pay up, I'm thinking we really need to talk about how some things have more value than others and the value of some things cannot be measured!
