The Pwotest

(Originally posted Janaury 2007 - A favourite story!)

Just before Christmas Alice asked if she could make a sign. No problem. I'm all for creativity! I got her some paper and a pen and she started scribbling away.

I asked her, "What are you writing there, Alice?" She said, "It's a pwotest!"

"Oh," I said, "... what are you protesting?"

"You don't have any chocolate milk!" she exclaimed.

With that, she taped the sign she had made to the back of an empty wrapping paper tube and started marching around the room chanting, "We want chocolate milk! We want chocolate milk!"

It's not a cause that is going to change the world, but hey, you've gotta start somewhere right?

Only my kid...
