common sense

it is a recurring situation
I get up in the morning
my son wants cereal
today he wanted sugar cereal
I do not think we have sugar cereal right now
I think I ate all the sugar cereal
while trying to diffuse this four year old bomb I reach for a banana
as I take a bite dean asks if he can have a banana

I pause
with a mouthful of banana and my arm out streched
I ask if he wants this banana
dean says no... he tells us that he wants a whole banana

very simple
very american legacy foundation
very simple
the imprinting is clear
they want what we want
they do what we do

this goes for what we eat
how we drive
how we treat other people
and of course
with most anything else that we do
