Conversation with a 2nd grader

Jemma: Daddy, did they have milk in 1492?

Me: Sure. Did you think they invented dairy cows just since then?

Jemma: I think that there were cows, but they just didn't know what would happen if they did...(makes motion like milking a cow)

Now that's a kid who is thinking!

Very cute.

At least you can tell her that cows have improved their lot since the Middle Ages.

After all one of them is Secretary of State.

Sheep and goats are one thing, but the guy (and you know it must have been a guy--probably drunk)who first thought to milk a cow or water buffalo; he was one brave/stupid S.O.B.

Hey sorry about your Red Sox. I was looking forward to smashing them in the ALCS.

Oh well, maybe next year.

Thanks, a Yankee/Sox ALCS is always the best no matter how it comes out.

Anyway, I am a New England transplant so it doesn't hurt that much when the the Sox fold.
