OT - What my kids want me to will them

A lifelong family friend lost her father last week. At dinner tonight we were discussing what each of his three children got. I could tell my 15 year old son and 12 year old daughter were listening intently. 

After the conversation I asked them what they wanted when I died.  My son immediately said "all of the guns and all of the ammo." This came as no surprise since he is so into hunting. 

I asked my daughter what she wanted and without hesitation she said "I want the Big Green Egg!"  I got a real kick out of it. 

Hopefully I won't be kicking off anytime soon, but it made me feel good to know that she loves the egg as much as I do.

    Sweet answer, if I was your son I would have said guns ammo and the egg. ;)

    Thanks for that post John.  You sir are the man!  My wife and I don't have children, but we have been very close to our nieces and nephews.  We have a total of seven, but only five eggs.  This is the excuse I've been looking for to pick up a minimax and maybe another XL!! :D :-bd

    Think the wife will buy it??


    I'm ashamed what I did for a Klondike Bar!!

    The lifetime warrant and the long life expectancy of the egg. Is why I bought the XL. I told my kids that one of them would get it after I die. Helped justify to wife.

    I'm going to be cremated and they'll use the ash tool to scrape me out...

    Thanks guys! 

    @BOWHUNR 5 eggs! Now that is a lot of eggs. Go ahead and get those other two.

    An XXL and a MiniMax would complete the collection for now and make 7.  I'm afraid that would take a LOT of salesmanship on your part though.
