Our kids like to tell stories. Last week I mentioned their Roman sons, and this week the kids and their many sons were up to more exciting adventures. Here's an excerpt of a lunchtime conversation where they caught me up to speed on all they had been doing in their play time.
Joshua: Hannah and I drove a trillion and ten passenger bus to church today. It was a trillion and ten stories tall. That's very tall.
Me: Wow...that certainly is tall.
Joshua: Yeah, well, we have a trillion and ten kids.
Me, trying not to have the typical response when a person finds out how many children you have: I bet that's a lot of fun.
Joshua: Well, it is. But Hannah and I are having our trillion and eleventh child. We want to get to a trillion and twenty. [thoughtful pause] And then maybe a trillion and trillion. How about that, Hannah? A trillion and trillion kids?!
