Overheard: Thoughts on Marriage

Benjamin (6): I am NEVER getting married.
Papa: I used to say that, too. You'll change your mind.
Benjamin (adamantly): NO, I WON'T. When you get married, you have to go on a honeymoon. And I definitely don't want to do that.
Papa: Why not?
Benjamin: Because when you go on a honeymoon, you have to play games that I don't understand.
Papa: (!!!???!!!)
Benjamin: Like tennis.
Ah, yes. Perhaps it's best if he doesn't honeymoon for a while. The rules can be so confusing: you have to win the right to serve, and love is when you don't score.
Besides, there's always the tennis elbow thing.



  1. Ah Benjamin, welcome to the wonders of understanding true love. Thanks for giving us (Russ and I) a good chuckle this morning!

  2. That was waaaaay funny. Tennis. I love how kids have no idea. I'm pretty sure that's on the top of my list of reasons to keep them home. :-)
