We get a lot of wisdom from our back seat.
Our 11 year old has this whole political thing figured out. When he heard that the presidential candidates were picking their running mates, Sam had this suggestion…a bit of sage 6th grade advice.
“It’s sorta like picking teams for dodge ball. For a Vice President, you’d better pick someone who is a friend, someone that you like to be with, because being president is a hard job. You want someone on your team who will be a good player. Someone who likes the same kind of pizza that you do, someone who you like hanging out with, because you are going to be together for four years. It’s kinda like being married, isn’t it, Mom?” “Oh yeah,” I said….”it’s something like that Sam.”
Oh that life was as simple as picking a team for dodge ball…..dodge ball….banned in most US elementary schools.
Sorry….couldn’t find a picture of dodge ball…anywhere.
