Phone Conversations with the Boy

Daddy’s been traveling a bit lately.

Today he called the boy. They chatted a while. Their conversation went something like this:

Daddy: I have a monkey in the car. Would you like to hear it? (Daddy makes monkey noises.)

Boy (giggling and screaming): You don’t have a monkey in the car!

Daddy: I also have an elephant in the car. He’d also like to say hi to you. (Daddy makes elephant noises.)

Boy (still giggling and screaming): You don’t have an elephant in the car. It wouldn’t fit!

Random transition…

Boy: Cars can’t talk.

Daddy: What about Lightening McQueen?

Boy: Oh, that’s right. Some cars CAN talk. (Boy begins naming every character from both Disney Cars movies.)

A short eternity later…

Boy: And Flo can talk, and Mater can talk…

Daddy: Uh huh. Oh yeah. Is that right?

Boy: And Holly Shiftwell can talk…

At this particular point in the conversation, yours truly reporting live, mentally signed off.

Sad but true.
