In which my ten-year-old falls into my clever trap!

Walking to school today with my ten-year-old, Z.

Z: We were supposed to bring our favorite Dr. Seuss book to school today, but I just brought my favorite book.

Me: It's Dr. Seuss's birthday today, I'm sure they wanted you to bring one of his books because of that.

Z: Yes. But I don't like Dr. Seuss books.

Me: You do not like them?

Z: No.

Me: So you say! Try them and you may, I say.

Z: ARRRRGH! Don't quote Green Eggs and Ham to me!"

Me: Mooowhahahahahahaaaaaa!

  1. Well done, Matt. I wrote a blog back in November that is getting a little revival this week. It's called Folks with Sin and it was inspired by Green Eggs and Ham. It's about living a more missional lifestyle. Here's a link you might like it.
