Now That's Ambition

After running errands this afternoon, Evan says to me, "Mom? Would you help me build a time portal? I want to go back in time and visit the dinosaurs. I don't want to bring any back, because that would be bad. I just want to see them for real."

"Wow. A time portal? I don't think I know how to build that."

"I know how. When the vacuum cleaner breaks we can use the spare parts for it."

"What do you mean, when the vacuum cleaner breaks?"

When I related this story to my husband he said, "It's funny that the only thing keeping us from going back in time is a functional vacuum cleaner."
