Setting: Supper Table at the Jedi Household
Menu: Rotisserie Chicken, Corn on the Cob, Pears
Characters: Jenette, Aaron, and TPJ
A: TPJ, eat all of your chicken, and I'll let you pull the wishbone with me.
TPJ: What's a wishbone?"
J: You pull it, and if you get the longest piece, you get to make a wish.
Five minutes later, TPJ has finished his chicken and is ready to pull the wishbone.
After a few slippery tries (because the wishbone was still moist, not dried) TPJ ends up with the longest piece.
TPJ: Wait til you see Peter (daycare kid) again, Mommy... you'll see what I wished for.
Chuckles all around.
TPJ: Daddy, did you ever win a wishbone?
A: Yep, a few times.
TPJ: Mommy, did you ever win?
J: I think I won one time.
TPJ: What did you wish for?
J: For a prince to come and sweep me off of my feet.
TPJ: Did it happen?
Of course I answered that Daddy was my prince, and I didn't even giggle too much!
