The A Team is Hi to the Larious

MC was looking quite serious at a corner, so I inquired.
He said he wasn’t mad or sad and he didn’t have any questions.
I looked and waited and I am SO glad I did.
Here is what he said: “I have a lot of whys Mom.”
I wasn’t sure if he meant a lot of wise, or a lot of whys…so I asked him to tell me about that.
He spit out the list in such a way that it was clear they were causing a traffic jam in his control center.
“why are those tires like that? (fancy sporty wheels) Why is the six on the gas sign hanging crooked like that?? Why does that car have a rhinoceros on it…I see it all the time…why the rhinoceros??”
I smiled and talked about possibilites and told him how really glad I was he shared his whys. Further, that I really adore the way his mind works.

WOW.

THEN…

BB and CNN and I are on the way to the store and they are talking drama and intrigue and mystery and plots of epic proportions.
They say they hate Cody Henderson.
I say that isn’t very nice.
They say it is just a doll, well not a doll, a raisin…well, we SAY he is a raisin.
THEN they tell me the deal.
Cody Henderson is horrible. He jumps into people’s cereal and they try to eat him but he is poison and so they spit him out. He tastes terrible and his nose is really hairy. He runs away after he is spit out…no he hops away because he has no legs.
I tried to keep with their story. I said, “Let me get this straight, Cody Henderson is a raisin like person with a hairy nose who is horrible and hides in cereal?”
They said, “Yes Mom, and he is from Mexico…he told us that.”
Ahhh.

They went on with their make believe world wherein one character asked another, “Is your dad from China?” The character said (CNN), “Yes, his name is Patterson.”
They couldn’t figure out what I thought was so funny.
Hi to the Larious.
