This was the conversation that took place on the way to school yesterday between my 10 year old son, Grayson and my 7 year old girl, Andie.

Andie: “Did you know that the sky is blue because of the reflection off of the ocean?”

Grayson: “I don’t think that’s true.”

Andie: “It IS true!”

Grayson: “I think you made that up.”

Andie: “Uh-uh”…[pauses momentarily] “You HAVE to believe me!”

Grayson: “Why?”

Andie: [Another pause] “Because I just tooted.”

As I continued driving down the street, I just couldn’t quite seem to muster the appropriate words. I wanted to laugh, or just look confused, or just scratch my head, or give some sort of profound lesson.

My response was this:

“That is as valid as 95% of the arguments for any one viewpoint that you will hear throughout your life.”

Be careful when engaging in arguments. Make sure you have a point worth making, and that the other person is mature enough to listen. Chances are, you will probably feel better and do more good by silently blowing a toot in their general direction.

Have a great day!

Peace, Love, and all things Beef related,


My name is Wilson Horrell, aka “Beefcake”.  I’m a junkie turned sober that found CrossFit, running, and community to be my new addiction. I have no education or experience as a writer, and almost zero knowledge of grammar. I love sitting in front of a computer and spitting it out on paper as it goes through my brain. I hope you enjoy reading, and feel free to reach out or comment at anytime!
