Ammon has been a little lazy lately with his blog. I decided to share something funny that he said the other day.  In our conversations last weekend, he was lamenting the fact that Lance and David had moved away. I told him that after Kevin graduates, he and Gillian may move away as well. He looked confused and asked me why. I told him that Kevin might have to find a job in a different state and they would move wherever they got a job. Ammon seemed to accept it for that moment. The next day he said, "Let me get this straight. First David moves. Then Lance moves and now you're telling me that Gillian might move too?" "Yes, that's what I'm telling you," I replied.  Then Ammon said, "Why does everybody exploit me?!"

In the middle of my laughter, I got out of him that he thought exploit meant abandon or neglect. Nope- new word, new meaning.

Guys, every time you move, you abandon him. I'm glad you are not exploiting him.

Ammon, I wish we'd move closer to you. Sorry that so many are moving away.

Michelle's right. If you could find me a good paying job a little closer, we just might move. And I promise that we won't exploit you.

Ammon! Your a funny dude! We wish we could live closer to you as well!

You are right, Ammon! People should really stop exploiting you... :~)
