A Boy For All Seasons

| Denver, CO, USA | Awesome Customers, Family & Kids, Health & Body

(I’m taking a four-year-old boy back for a check up. He seems a little nervous so I’m talking to him to make him calm down a little bit. Note: the Broncos are playing in the play-offs.)

Me: “Is it still snowing outside? You look like you’re freezing!”

Kid: “Uh-huh, I don’t like the cold!”

Me: “Aw, that’s too bad. I love the cold. I love it when it’s winter! What’s your favorite season?”

Kid: “Post-season!”

Me: “Huh, what? Can you name the four seasons?”

Kid: “Duh! Pre-season, regular season, post-season and off-season! The Broncos made it to post-season! YAY!”

(Little guy sure showed me! And wasn’t nervous for the rest of his visit.)

Time To Separate The Horse From The Goats

| VA, USA | Family & Kids, Pets & Animals, Theme Of The Month

(We offer pony camps during the summer to kids wanting to learn to ride. We have very calm, safe horses to ride, and take all safety measures, but some parents are naturally worrisome.)

Mom: “Those horses are awfully big… Don’t you have something smaller for my daughter?”

Me: “Ma’am, I assure you, all of our horses are sweet. I’ve ridden all of them over my years here.”

Mom: “I just think that they’re too big for her. Maybe something smaller? Like a miniature horse?”

Me: “Ma’am, you can’t really ride a miniature horse…”

Mom: “Oh! What about that one! It’s perfectly sized for her!”

Me: “Uh… Ma’am… that’s a goat.”

(At this point, the daughter was bright red. She ended up riding one of our largest horses and did awesomely. And poor Benny the goat didn’t have to worry!)

All Meals Come Pre-Blessed

, | USA | Family & Kids, Funny Names, Religion

(At the restaurant I work at all of the employees names are written on a wall. A little girl around the age of six and her dad walk in. While waiting for their food she is reading the names out loud and spots the name Jesus.)

Girl: “Daddy, look, they have Jesus working here! That’s so awesome. Now we don’t have to pray before this meal!”

(Jesus got a chuckle out of this as the dad quickly explained it is a name pronounced ‘hey-Zeus.’)
