Sadie said today while we were driving, "Mom, how come no girls have ever been President or Co-President?" Aw, I think she meant "Vice President," the little dear heart.

"Well, Sweetie, I think it is just that most women do not want to hold that office. It's not really a great job and it takes people away from their families and most women want to be with their kids instead of pursuing political power and . . ." Sadie cut off my rambling train of thought.

"Well, I want power," Sadie asserted. "I want to feed on power until I'm full, and after that, I want to feed on some more power. Then," her voice dropped an octave and became flinty, determined, dangerous, "I want to drink from the cup of victory."

Are you now just a little bit frightened? I am, too.

So, anyway, I hear Evil Medical School takes about six years. We'd better start saving up.

That reminds me of my brother when he was little. He really enjoyed watching Pinky and the Brain and would go on and on about how he was going to take over the world. :)

I'm both a little frightened and seriously amused. You must be relishing watching her grow up!
