After our brief hiatus, we are back with the second winner of our Friday Funnies contest back in April. We have more funnies to share with you in weeks to come, but Rebekah is one of our winners with this funny story about a conversation with her daughter. Have a wonderful weekend everyone. See you back here Monday! Nicole for the girltalkers

This is from quite a while ago, when my first child was about 5 years old. Now, at 12, I think she’s reconsidered her position, but it remains to be seen…

On a car trip, she calmly informed me she would name her first daughter, “Marinade.” Trying not to laugh, I asked her why that name.

“Because it sounds pretty,” she replied.

“I suppose you could call her ‘Mary’ for short?”


“Um, do you know what marinade means?”


So, I explained it to her, and asked “You wouldn’t want to name your child after food, would you?”

“Well,” still perfectly serious, “Noah named his son, ‘Ham.’”
