Happy Thanksgiving.

On this fine Thanksgiving Day my dearest child and I had a serious conversation this morning.

"Mom why can't we have a drain for SNOT?"
"A what?"
"Why can't we have a drain for the snot to come right out of us."
"What kind of drain are you thinking about?"
"One like a rain gutter of course. It can make the snot come right out."
"Well were do you suppose the snot would come out from."
"I think maybe my hole (pointing to his belly button) or maybe down by my toes."
"Well maybe you could invent something"
"Hey Mom, Did you know snot melts in the sun?"

I gave up, I really don't want to know if he tried it out or if it was just a theory.

So on that note I have to say on this Thanksgiving day I am grateful for the conversations I have with my son, if it weren't for him I would have lost my imagination a long time ago.
