A Facelift

As a child of a family that didn't like conflict, politics and political issues make me uncomfortable. Lately, however, I find that I am enjoying watching the back and forth, particularly as they keep referring to Palin and Obama as too young to be vice-president and/or president. As someone who may be about their ages, give or take a year, and as someone who sometimes thinks of herself as getting older by the day, I like hearing daily about how very young these candidates are.

On another note, d'ya ever joke to someone that you'd sell them (or give, if it was a particularly bad day) your kid because of their behavior at the moment? Alternately, has anyone said to you while smiling, "how much would you take for that beautiful boy (or girl)"? Don't do that anymore. What's this world coming to? And seriously, what mother would take the old boy literally? I mean, it would take at least two fatted hogs.

Thanks for the tip about not teasing strangers about buying their kids. I have "foot and mouth" syndrome just like the politician mentioned. I would hate to have to be bailed out of jail for it. YIKES!

And to think, I just intimated the other day that I would trade my dog Tar (Aunt Loraine's dog Tar) for the good ol' boy in the pick-up truck's 2 yung-uns! (He was from Kentucky, too.) The shame...........

I saw that story as well. Crazy world.

The fact that you mentioned politicians and swine in the same blog entry is noteworthy.

Update: Anna says she'd like to think that she was worth more than two hogs.

I think it all depends on whether or not the hogs come with the sucklings... I'm glad I'm not the only one that thought this was absolutely ridiculous.

On the comment about youth and the presidency: The constitution says 35. So, I guess anyone over that age is eligible.
