So, my son, his best friend (our neighbor), and I just got home. While in the car, I noticed a Bed, Bath, & Beyond Coupon on the seat and said, "Oh, good. I need a grill!"
My sour little kid said, "Why? We don't have enough friends to grill for."
To which I said, "Ummm... I have friends. You might not be invited out, but I am."
His reply was, "But y'all go to happy hours. I can't go, unless..."
"We do like the cartoons, and I get on top and [the neighbor kid] is on bottom under a trenchcoat so we look tall."
So, I saw the best friend look at him in the mirror. Then, the best friend said, "Dude that would NOT work."
I thought he was going to say because my son's face would still look young or it would be so obvious what was going on.
Instead, he said, "How you gone explain Mexican legs with a black person on top?"
They fell out laughing, then my son tried to think up explanations. "I could say I'm biracial."
And the best friend nixed that one, "You wouldn't be half-and-half like that!"
"They did it on Scooby-Doo all the time!"
"They were all the same color!"
"No, it'd be Scooby on the bottom."
"They only fooled ghosts and monsters."
"Ghosts and monsters could see!"
"You need to think before you talk, dude. Scooby-Doo is ridiculous and so are you."
At that point, they were laughing so hard they couldn't sit up. I was wondering what was so funny, but smiling.
I cannot figure out what makes these kids tick! :-p
