(Max is peering into a sewer grate.)
Me: What are you doing?
Max: Looking for alligators.
Me: Oh, come on.
Max: Seriously – the police put alligators into the sewers!
Me: Why would they do that?
Max: Because they are trying to keep people out of there.
Me: Why would anyone want to go down into the sewers??
Max: Because there is cool stuff down there!
Me: Like what??
Max: (shrugs) Alligators.
Max: (singing) The bear went over the mountain!
Wow, I can’t believe I have that singing voice.
Me: You mean, that you are so good?
Max: No, just what it sounds like. I really sound like a woman.
Max: Ms. Malik said that one time she hit a deer with her car.
Me: Yikes! (After a pause.) Know what you should say if you hit a deer? “OH DEER!”
Max: Hitting deers is not a joke. There’s nothing funny about it. You should be ashamed.
Me: I am.
