Driving down the road with teenagers, I had the following conversation with one teenager:
Teen: ” . . . so I was thinking we could use that song as a platelet for our song.”
Me: ” . . . a platelet? Do you mean a template?”
Teen: “Uh. Yeah, template, whatever.”
Me, smiling: “Do you even know what a platelet is?”
Teen: “Yeah . . . It’s a really small plate.”
Me, instantly hysterical: “A really small plate?!”
Me: “A platelet is a kind of blood cell . . .” [Note: Slightly inaccurate, but still, close enough.]
Teen: ” . . . ”
I had begun to laugh so hard I was crying . . . I couldn’t breathe.
Now, days later, all I do is think . . . platelet, really small plate . . . and I am amused all over again.
That is all.

Some days, one just really needs a good laugh. God, in His wisdom, knowing this, gave us kids.
haha, small plate
Happy New Year!
Some days, we take anything we can get, in the way of laughter……especially facing January….
