Plans for World Domination
Doesn’t every 11 year old have a plan for world domination? Here’s Jessica’s:
- Become the head of a major corporation
- Become president of the US
- Get a large army
- Work on charisma skills
- Amass several hundred quintillion dollars
- Conquer, persuade, or buy every country on earth
Sounds like a sound plan to me. Maybe if I’d had the forethought to make a plan when I was 11, I would have taken over the world by now. And it would be a sparklier and prettier place.
In the interests of keeping my new year’s resolution to spend more time with family and friends, Megan and I are heading out to visit the Dynamic Duo in their native habitat this afternoon. While we’re doing that, I’ll leave you with some conversations Erica has posted recently on Facebook. Enjoy!
Erica: I shouldn’t be doing this.
Jessica: So when has that ever stopped you?
Jessica: Mom, you’re too cool to be from here.
Erica: Well, I have travelled a lot.
Jessica: No, I mean from Earth.
Jessica: So what exactly are aristocratic features?
Erica: Inbred white people.
Jessica: Why is it the sacred duty of all parents to be so annoying?
Erica: Why are all children so annoying?
Jessica: We can’t help it!
Erica: (bursting into laughter)
I think my favorite was when Erica posted that she “totally busted Jessica using her iPad as a flashlight to read a book.” A girl after my own heart – and I’m a girl who used to read under the covers, too.
