Now I Lay Me Down To Sleep

Our boys' bedtime prayers usually fall into a predictable routine. But Nels has been changing it up with some new content lately:

"Please help me not to talk when other people are talking. And please HELP OTHER PEOPLE NOT TO TALK WHEN I'M TALKING.

And thank you that we're so lucky...and please help other people to be lucky too."

It's all sincere, but certain sentiments are perhaps more heartfelt than others.

I'll translate Nels' request of luck for all into specifics for Dietrich — corn dogs and french fries for every meal. That's the kind of luck he's hoping for these days.

I think you should send this to Reader's Digest. It may not be the most prestigious mag to be published in, but they pay $100 for anecdotes. Here's the link. http://www.rd.com/submitJokePage.do
