Weather Boy

"Mom, that tornado was fun yesterday."

"That wasn't a real tornado, Cael."

"But you said we had to go to the basement bathroom because of the tornado!"

"We had to go there in case there was a tornado.  But we got lucky and it didn't happen here."

"How did you know?"

"Well, you would know if there had been a tornado here.  But mostly because I was watching the news and listening to the meteorologist."

"Who is the meat-or-jist?"

"Meteorologist.  He's a guy who studies the weather and can predict what it will be like.  And they can see on their maps where the worst weather is happening.  Yesterday the worst weather was here, but we got lucky that there was no tornado."

"I want to be a weather person."

"You can do that when you grow up, if you want."

"Yeah, that's what I'll be.  And I'll tell people when it's going to rain, and when it's going to snow, and when I want to eat meat."

"Meat?  That has nothing to do with weather."

"Sure it does.  I'm a meat-or-jist!"

  1. Something tells me Cael is going to be a very entertaining meat-or-jist guy! :) I will be looking forward to the news if he ever chooses journalism as a career.... Too much violence and bitterness takes the headlines these days.....


Leave your own "ism". Cael and Graham double-dog dare you.
