Today's Pearl of Wisdom

On my way to Cub Scouts with Heir No. One, we were discussing the planets. He was pontificating about life on other planets. He thought we might find life on the moon. I said "Not much chance of that sport, unless we took it there." Undaunted, he kept going through the list. "What about Mars, or Saturn, or Jupiter?" I told him "I don't think Jupiter, buddy. Once you got to a part you could stand on, the gravity would probably kill anything that lives."

It got really quiet in the back seat for a minute. Then he said "Do you know what, Dad? You're not the Boss of my imagination."

He's right about that.
