This Morning

On the way to school, we saw our neighborhood’s blue Smart Car, which he and I like to spot. We did not see our neighborhood’s black Smart Car–which we also like to locate–and we haven’t seen it for a while. “Where are you black Smart Car?” I asked aloud. “Are you at school or at work?”

“Maybe they have a kid,” he said.

“Do I have a kid?” I asked him.

“Mm-hmm…”

“…Mm-hmm?…”

“…which would be me,” he said, making me happy.
