Conversation in the Car - Take 1
Coop: Mom! Mom! Look! Look! It's a shooting star!
Me: Really? (because what else are you going to say, it's still daylight)
Coop: Yeah, yeah! Look!
Me: (me driving) Can't Coop. We'll have a wreck.
Coop: PUHWEEZ!! It'll be real qwick.
Me: *sigh* Okay. real quick. (looks left and up) Coop, that's an airplane.
Coop: NUH-UH! It's a star and I'm gonna make a wish.
Me: What are you going to wish for?
Coop: That more snow clouds come and it snows for 3 days, no 5 days, and the snow turns into berries, red ones, and then and then, it'll get even colder and the berries will freeze into nutrigrain bars and then I'm gonna go outside and eat 'em all. Yep. That'll be good.
Me: I think I should probably start cooking real food more.
Coop: Noooo! I likes the nutrigrain bars. All colors. The berries will have to be red and blue and green and purple and when they fall down, it'll be all smushy and slimey (insert evil Coop laugh). And then and then....oh look, momma! It's police truck and he's got big guns in that truck.
Me: That's actually a car, baby.
Coop: (exasperated) I knoooowwww...but I want to call it a truck. duh.
Me: Don't say duh to your mom.
Coop: ...but policeman don't shoot good people, just the bad people like the ones who steal things like TVs and money and my nutrigrain bars.
Me: Yep, definitely going to the grocery tonight.
