Conversation With Nels

"You know what's good about being a human? Animals mostly eat one thing. But humans eat all kinds of foods."

"I'm glad I'm a human and I get to eat a lot of different foods," I reply.

"Except when you're allergic. Then you can't eat things. I know Amelia is VERY allergic to eggs. And Emma is allergic to jelly beans. And cats."

"Aren't you glad we aren't allergic to anything?"

"Yes. We're allergic to pollen. But just a little bit."

"Did daddy tell you you're allergic to pollen?"


"You sure do pay attention, Nels Martin."

"Except when Daddy's praying."

Yeah, that's understandable. I never pay attention when Shaun is praying either. WHY DOES HE INSIST ON ALWAYS DOING IT IN HEBREW?!?!
