My friends, Ricky and Lana, were on a flight to North Carolina, and there was a congressman seated next to a little girl in the seat behind them.

  The congressman turned to the little girl and said, “I’ve heard that flights go faster if you talk to folks sitting beside you.”

   The little girl had just opened a book, she slowly closed it and said, “What would you like to talk about?”

   The congressman smugly smiled and said “Oh, I really don’t know, how “bout global warming or universal health care?”cow

  The girl said, “ok, those could be interesting topics but let me ask you a question first.      

  A horse and a cow and a deer all eat the same stuff----they all eat grass, yet a deer excretes little pellets and a cow turns out a flat patty and a horse produces clumps of dried grass---why do you think that is?”

   The congressman was really surprised at the little girl’s intelligence. He thought about her question for a moment then said “Hmmmmm—I have no idea”

   The little girl said, “Do you really feel qualified to discuss global warming or universal health care when you don’t know crap?” 

From the mouths of babes…


I am so thankful for Dr. Merrick and Rebecca. Rebecca is truly an angel and stops everything to help when I have concerns. Dr. Merrick is so kind and puts you at ease."
