Jesus don't care...

I wanted Joel to tidy up the family room.  But when I peeked in there later, I thought it was less than stellar.

I said, "Joel, I want you to think of someone that we would really want the house cleaned up for if they were coming."

Understanding exactly what I wanted, but resisting in the way only Joel can, he said, "I don't know!"

Equally stubborn, I say, "Pick someone.  Grandma and Grandpa, Jesus, Obama...who?"

He interrupts my list of important people with, "Jesus wouldn't care!" and a look of complete nonchalance.

Yes, that's probably true.  Now if I could be more like Jesus!
