Let's all donate a kidney


My 6 year old granddaughter came over today to "take care" of me. She really was lots of help, and entertainment.

Here's one of our conversations.
The big bold print is Elora:



"Grandma Honey have you been watching TV lately?"


Uh no, not really


"Oh, then you probably don't know about this...
They are looking for people to donate a kidney."



Really?!


"Yes!
There are over 2,000 people a year who need a kidney.
If you donate one, you get some ice cream for free!
From Baskin and Robbins!"
Do you suppose she got that commercial confused with the one about donating blood??

Haaaaaaaaaa! That is so cute. I think I would need a lot more than ice cream to give up a kidney. But you got to love the innocence and simplicticness(?) of a child.

That is my sweet Elora!! We watched a special on the news a few weeks ago about how people need kidneys and how you can donate them, however I am confident the ice cream is from the pint for pint commericals that have been on lately... I would love to spend a day in her little head!

I just had a weird thought. This post reminds me of "Let's all go to the lobby."

Elora is so entertaining! I imagine she is good to keep your mind off of your physical ailments!

Jill said...

Karen...I must be a little slow...what does, "Let's all go to the lobby." mean? Is it a line from a movie?

Tom and Karen Mortensen said...

Jill, I am surprised. You are older than me! LOL It was that song that was played at the drive in movie before the show started. Let's all go to the lobby, let's all go to the lobby , let's all go to the lobby and get ourselves a treat. Just a little play on words. Let's all donate a kidney/ let's all go to the lobby. I hope this explains it okay. You can see this song on youtube.
