Conversation in the car today
September 19, 2006
“Mom, what do you give a dog that has a fever?” my ten year old asks me as we are driving.
“Uh, wow, I really have no idea. I’m sure that there is some kind of dog tylenol or something. Do dogs even get fevers? I am sorry I have no idea.” I answer.
“I heard that it’s ketchup.” he says.
“Really? Ketchup? I find that somewhat hard to believe.” I answer. I hate when they quiz me with these questions because the two of them are walking trivia depositories. I think they frequently ask me questions for the sole purpose of proving their superior knowledge.
“No, it isn’t ketchup. It’s mustard.” my 9 year old pipes up.
“ketchup…mustard, the perfect thing for a hot dog.” the both yell in unison, “Get it?!?!”
