We always have an Easter-egg hunt for the kids.  We take plastic eggs and fill them with candies and change, then hide them around the yard.  The kids go find them and everyone has a lovely time.

Yesterday, the smaller offspring asked Rabid when the hunt would begin.  

She told him that this year, we were having a special egg-hunt; an Inspirational Quote hunt.  She said that she and I had been collecting inspirational quotes for the last few weeks and writing them on slips of paper.  This year, we would replace the candies and change with the inspirational quotes.

O2 looked disappointed.  

"The real fun part comes after the hunt," I told him, riffing on his mom's genius.  "Each of you will have the opportunity to read the quotes that you've collected.  Based on your dramatic interpretation of the quote, we'll reward you with a piece of candy.  The better a job you do with the quote, the better the candy reward."

"This will be the worst egg hunt ever," O2 grumbled.

As soon as Winston Churchill arrived at his hotel after the first night of the Yalta summit, he was heard to say, "This will be the worst egg hunt ever"

Clearly, O2 won.

Nice to see 02 has caught up w/ 01.
I still remember 01's meltdown when snow and ice threatened to mess up the hunt. Once he settled down it turned out to be quite fun.
