The Future

Max: Mom, how old will I be when Reuben is ten?

Me: Well, you’re four years older than Reuben, so you’ll be…

Max: Fourteen?

Me: *sigh* Yeah, you’ll be 14. Hanging out with your friends all the time at the mall….. probably starting to talk
me into getting you a car….

Max: Yeah, well, I’ll need a sweet ride to take out my girlfriend.

Me: Of course.

Spelling

Max: I think San Francisco has a silent ‘d’.

Me: What? Why would you think that?

Max: You know, because I don’t hear a ‘d’ in there.

Trivial

LOUD CRASH from upstairs

Me: (Yelling up from downstairs) What the heck was that?!

Max: (Yelling down from upstairs) Oh, nothing important!

Nuts

Max: That squirrel is watching me.

Me: Yeah, sometimes they do that. Creepy squirrels – they look like they are about to attack you sometimes.

Max: Well, against a human, the squirrel couldn’t win in a fight. Now, if you had a whole bunch of squirrels, you know like a swarm of squirrels, then the human probably wouldn’t survive.

Me: How many squirrels are in a swarm?

Max: Like ten, maybe nine at the least.

Going Postal

(after an in-depth discussion of the weakened postal service industry…)

Me: So, Max, as we were saying, the postal industry is not doing that great. They might even have to cancel Saturday mail!

Max: Yeah, and I bet the postal boss is in the back saying ‘I want more money!’ You know because bosses usually are like that – they always want more money. You know, like Mr. Krabbs.
