Kids Say the Darndest Things, part 1

I just love some of the conversations I have with my kiddos, and thought it would be fun to keep track of a few of them here.


Driving past a Chick-Fil-A with Flower...

Mommy, that's Chick Fil A.


Yep!


My friends at school talked about it and that place has good chicken.


Yep!


We should go there.


Well honey, we don't eat there.


Why not?


We don't agree with some of their unfair laws.


WAIT, THEY DON'T LET BLACK PEOPLE EAT THEIR CHICKEN?


(sweet, sweet girl)

No, they do.  But they don't think gay people should be allowed to get married.


You mean, like two boys or two girls?


Yes.


Well, that's stupid.  Getting married has nothing to do with chicken.


I agree, but we don't like to support their ideas with our money, so we don't eat there.


Oh, like Rosa Parks and her bus, right? How the people just walked instead?


Pretty much, yeah.


<pause>


So, do you think if they change their unfair laws we could eat their chicken?  Because my friend says its really good.



**Disclaimer- yes, I know that a lot of companies support a lot of things I dislike and I don't boycott them all.  This is our family's choice...if your family's take on it is different, we still like you :)  And yes, I have tried it and they do have delicious chicken.**
