Yesterday afternoon, a 'discussion' of sorts began between my daughter Hannah and I. She was presenting me with a well thought-out argument in favor of us participating in this year's cookie dough fund raiser for the school. I patiently explained (for the umpteen jillionth time) that we don't normally participate in fund raisers like these because I don't feel safe sending her door to door to solicit for her school.
She was crushed.
There were tears.
And then, in one last, empassioned and tearful plea, she shouted, "Mom! They're supposed to be FUN! That why they call them FUNd Raisers!"
"Yes, Hannah...this IS fun."
