The One Thing Ann Coulter and I Have in Common

So we're sitting at dinner tonight, chatting, which as you all know now is our favorite family activity. (Read about it here.) It's been a long day, and I've felt every one of my 48 years. Billy mentions that a girl he knows wants to go to Cornell.

Ben: That's where Ruth Bader Ginsburg went. (Ben is Ruth Bader Ginsburg's number one fan. He may be only 14, but he loves her with a bright white light. He is unquestionably the only boy at Fox Valley Junior High with a shirt that says "I Heart Ruth Bader Ginsburg."

Me (sarcastically): I'm sure that's why Billy's friend wants to go there.

Ben: Ann Coulter went there, too.

Billy: Ann Coulter is hot.

Ben: No she's not. She's too conservative to be hot. I think she's a man, anyway.

Billy: I don't care if she's conservative. She's hot.

Ben: She can't be hot, Billy. She's like 48 or something. You can't be hot if you're 48.

A perfect end to a perfect day.

Ouch. Maybe it's time you "accidentally" dropped some super hot peppers in the meatloaf. :)

Ann Coulter is just...awful. She's too mean and crabby to be hot. No matter what she looks like.

Mine are still so little that they think I am "bootiful", but I know it's coming...

Well, Ann Coulter isn't, wasn't, and won't be hot at any age.

But, ouch.

Well. Are they too old to be grounded...until they're forty-eight? heh.

Grounding them until age 48 is an excellent idea. We'll save loads on college tuition, and I will always know where they are at night.
