My life is like a Monty Python skit

The other day hubby remarked how much our life is like a particular Monty Python skit:

This type of exchange takes place with SB every.single.day. She loves to argue. To be contrary. I could say, "The sky is blue" and she would insist it isn't.

The other day she told me about how she is going to be a paleontologist and have four babies. Then she said, "But I'm not going to be a Mommy."

"If you have four babies, sweetie, you will be a Mommy."

"No, I won't! I'm going to be a paleontologist!"

"I know. But you will also be a Mommy."

"I'm not going to be a Mommy like you."

"Do you mean you're not going to be a stay-at-home Mommy like I am? You are going to work outside the home?"


"You can definitely do that if you want to. But being a Mommy isn't about having a job or not having a job. It's about having children. When you have a baby, you will be a Mommy, no matter what else you choose to do."


"But you're going to have four babies."


"Alrighty then."

And that is why I keep my refrigerator fully stocked with beer.
