Rockin' Pneumonia and the Boogie Woogie Flu

So Jake has been home since Wednesday with the flu. I took him to the doctor, they swabbed his nose and confirmed the diagnosis. We started him on Tami flu and he was on the road to wellness by Wednesday night.

I let him stay home again today just to make completely sure. We had a couple of errands to run (pick up paltry paycheck, bank, grocery store) so we were out driving around.

I'm not sure what started the conversation, but this is how it ended:

Jake: Mom, are we going to get that ash mark on our forehead?

Me: Sure, we can go to the Ash Wednesday service at church next week if you'd like.

Jake: Why do we get that mark?

Me: Well, it's like a promise to God and Jesus that we remember the great sacrifice of Jesus dying on the cross at Easter time. And the ashes on the forehead show everyone we contact that we believe in Jesus.

Jake: So...does that mean we're Entrepreneurs?
