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.
