Luke's Question for Me

Have I mentioned that about two weeks ago, Luke sat with me on the couch and asked, "Mom, do you want to buy NutriSystem?"

I quickly looked over at the TV to see if a NutriSystem commercial was on, but no such luck. Although there must have been a NutriSystem commercial on at some point.

I smiled and asked, "Do you think I need to buy NutriSystem?"

Luke answered, "If you want to lose weight you could buy NutriSystem."

Me, "Do you think I need to lose weight?"

I asked the age-old question that all men dread their entire lives, but there were no men there to tell him to turn around and run the other way when a woman asks that question. Instead, he took it in stride. He placed his hands on either side of my waist as if measuring me. He cocked his head to the side, shrugged his shoulders and said, "If you want to."

I laughed. What a great answer! I responded, "Well done, Luke! I don't think I'm going to buy it just yet though because I don't think the food looks very good."

He began to debate the quality of the food, but I cut off the conversation there. Unfortunately, the fact remains that my son asked me if I wanted to buy NutriSystem. That's gotta say something, right?

It doesn't say anything other than he is watching too many commercials.
