a rare dinner out.
We went to Pizza Hut so the boys could use their "Book It" coupons
they earned for reading time.
On the drive home, a conversation with Chris:
"Hey Mom, say two people ate the exact same amount of pizza, okay?"
"And then both people pooped and one pooped solid and one pooped diarrhea.
Which poop would weigh more?"
"Hey Mom, didja hear me?"
Me: "Um...Yes. You were asking me if two people eat the same exact amount of pizza, and one had regular poop and one had diarrhea, which would weigh more."
"Yeah! So what do you think!?
Me: "Chris, why are you asking me this?"
"Because we learned about it in school!"
Me, swerving the car as I crane my neck to look at him: "You were discussing poop and DIARRHEA in school????
"NO, Mom, we were discussing.... just answer the question!"
Me: "Okay, um, they would weigh the same?"
"Yes, that's right! You got it right, Mom!"
Me: "Now tell me again, why were you discussing poop at school?"
I glance in the rearview mirror.
Trey is completely and utterly rapt,
his head swiveling back and forth like a spectator at a tennis match.
Chris: "We were learning about Mass and Volume and Weight, Mom!"
Me: ::::chirp, chirp:::::
"Glad to see you are applying science to every day life, Son."
What would life be like without Boys??
