Minion1 “Funstation is educational, you can learn about friction.”
Minion1 has learned how to debate logically and persuasively much to my pride and detriment. His approach to arguments has matured and now understand that with a well thought justification I can be swayed. The friction statement was further supported by how to avoid it on slides and the effect of gravity on the speed of descent.
I had put forth an idea to visit the museum, a place to learn and gain knowledge. His argument was Funstation could teach through experience. Well played minion1, well played.
Minion2 “Awesome people do awesome things, and that is why I am awesome!”
Rather hard to argue with this one, though I am curious as to what awesome things that she has done.
Minion2 “Careful, you may have a love crash”
I was sitting at the lights, fully loaded up with the Minions and BB, waiting for the lights to change. BB leant across and gave me a kiss on the cheek much to the amusement of the Minions. Minion2 wanted to see another kiss but I said I had to be careful when driving as my eyes would not be on the road and we may crash. Minion2 cheerfully commented “Careful, you may have a love crash”
Minion1 “I like the idea of God”
Minion1 came home from school rather excited but also pensive. I asked him what was going on and he informed me that he was going to be a Media Captain, a school reporter if you will. Pride flushed through me and I thought there is no way he can avoid writing now, after isn’t that what a reporter does? Minion1 then went on to explain that the school stipulates that the Media Captain must obey all the school rules, be a good Christian and follow all the religious teachings religiously. He was miffed to say the least, as he thought that the point of being a Media Captain was to take photos and write-up articles for the school and not sit in church.
I pointed out rather gently that he was attending a Christian School and that they get to make the rules about job descriptions and theological overhead. He couldn’t understand he considered both independent and that he was a good person and by extension that meant a good Christian. I had a chuckle at this and began to ask him what did he think about God and the schools need of worship and belief. He looked rather thoughtful, so I followed up and asked if he believed in God? He paused a moment and looked me in the eye and said “I like the idea of God”. A boy after my heart, a Church does not define how you worship, regardless of the God.
Minion2: “There’s a bit of language in Smurfs, they say the seaweed”
Minions, Unclelord and I were discussing swearing and the various movies out with their ratings. Smurfs is evidently worse than transformers 3! Got to watch out for the seaweed, not the ’C’ word.
