If I Only Had a Brain...

So we recently pulled out of the heavenly countryside of the majestic Indiana to begin our travels back to our state of residence. Upon leaving my parent's farm, there were tears and heartbreak. I returned home with this sweet email from my dad. It made me cry...

"Now I know what the scarecrow in the Wizard of Oz felt when he said he must have a heart because it was breaking. That’s the way I felt after you all left."

I was crying after I read the email...but then I started uncontrollably laughing. I do not know if my dad did it on purpose or not, but it worked...I was still smiling. I laughed, I cried, it moved me. So, I replied...

The scarecrow wanted a brain. It was the lion that wanted a heart. I did not even notice until a few minutes after I read it. I went back a through my tears, started chuckling and it turned into a full belly laugh. I needed it.
Love, Your Darling Daughter"

To which my mom replied, "You both need brains, it was the Tin Man that needed a heart. For heaven's sake!"

Well, didn't I feel silly! I guess the apple does not fall far from the tree, huh? Who ever like that silly movie anyways?
