Maybe she was born with it. Or maybe it’s bacon.

Last night George, Jacob, and I were enjoying a nice dinner, when Jacob suddenly announced he couldn’t eat any more because something was stuck in his throat.

Me: “I know what’s stuck in your throat. It’s just the words you were about to say. You were going to say, ‘Oh, Mom. Your beauty flows out in all directions.”

Jacob: “No. It’s a piece of bacon.”

Me (laughing): “It’s not a piece of bacon. It’s ‘Oh, Mom. Your beauty flows out in all directions.’ Just go ahead and say it, and then it won’t be stuck anymore.”

Jacob (also laughing): “Oh, Mom. Your beauty flows out in all directions. See! It’s still stuck. It’s a piece of bacon.”

Okay. Maybe it was a piece of bacon. But I got a pretty decent compliment out of the deal.

I suppose it’s pretty lame to put compliments in other people’s mouths. But a girl’s gotta do whatever it takes. 😉

Mostly I just like to mess with Jacob and hear him laugh.

You have my permission, dear. Have bacon for dinner.

Truth be told, we had B.L.O.A.T.’s (Bacon, lettuce, onion, avocado, and tomato). I highly recommend them, even if the name isn’t particularly appealing. 🙂
