Tonight was Grace's night for special dinner with mom and dad. Every now and then, we try to take each child out individually and give them some one-on-one. G chose Chinese food. We've been going to this place for twelve years, so we know the owners well and they usually stop to talk to us a bit. Anyway, G and I went in while PDaddy parked the van. P3 walks in the door and notes that there's no decorations for Christmas and says something to the owner. The owner says, "I'm sorry, Miss Grace. We don't celebrate Christmas."
Grace says, "Oh."
The owner says "We are Buddhist and don't believe in the birth of the baby Jesus."
Grace says, deadpan, "My mom doesn't, either,... but we have a Christmas tree!"
ROFLOL. I think it's one of those "you had to be there" moments. I just loved how casually she dropped that bomb.
