Let’s keep it lighthearted. Today again, like yesterday.  A belly tickling article from Daily News Dig is my inspiration. It’s called How do you decide who to marry? The answers are given by kids. Yes, I thought that would get you. Out of the mouths of babes…

The answer to how do you decide who to marry
You got to find somebody who likes the same stuff. Like, if you like sports, she should like it that you like sports, and she should keep the chips and dip coming.
– Alan, age 10
My comment – that’s a good enough reason for a guy. I know many who still think that way 😉
-No person really decides before they grow up who they’re going to marry. God decides it all way before, and you get to find out later who you’re stuck with.
– Kristen, age 10
My comment – Oh dear! She may have a point.
The answer to How can a stranger tell which two persons are married.
You might have to guess, based on whether they seem to be yelling at the same kids.
– Derrick, age 8
My comment is lost in loud guffaws. Because although this is very one dimensional it is also very true.
Qs What do most people do on a date?
Dates are for having fun, and people should use them to get to know each other. Even boys have something to say if you listen long enough.
– Lynnette, age 8 (isn’t she a treasure)
My comment – even boys…hahahaha
(2) On the first date, they just tell each other lies and that Usually gets them interested enough to go for a second date.
– Martin, age 10
My comment – hmmm – is this what you’ve done?  Anyone?
Is it better to be single or married?
It’s better for girls to be single but not for boys. Boys need someone to clean up after them.
– Anita, age 9 (bless you child)
My comment – no comment. Its quite true that marriage does more for men than for women. Anyday.

What are your thoughts?
This is my Day 7 post for the Ultimate Blog Challenge
