On the way to school…
Em: Dad, what will you do at work, today? Will you have some meetings?
Me: Yes, definitely.
Em: What about working on your computer?
Me: If I’m lucky, maybe?
Em: Will you get to have donuts?
Me: Probably not.
Em: That’s too bad. *beat* I think donuts should be an everyday thing. Did you know there’s a donut workout? You put a donut on the floor, and every time you do a push-up you eat a donut. You can also do it with pull-ups.
Em: Although I guess that would defeat the purpose of the workout.
At this point I remember that she’s read the Federal Donuts book, and all of this starts to make sense.
Well, I get to work, and what do I see?
Later, I told Em and her eyes lit up. “I made them manifest!”, she said.
