26Dec08

Mom:  You need to take a bath.

Son:  Oh, mom!

Mom:  Really.  It’s been three days.  And we’re getting you a haircut today.

Son:  But mom!  Let me tell you something.

Mom:  Hmm.

Son:  Did you know that roadrunner crocodiles can go without water for ten days?

Mom:  Hmm.

Son:  Yeah.  Did you know that they hold water in their skin?

Mom:  Let me tell you something.  

Son:  What.

Mom:  It’s a secret, come close.

Son:  (leans in)

Mom:  (whispers)  Human boys cannot go without water for ten days.

Son:  (whispers) But I am a roadrunner crocodile!

Mom:  Hmm.  You have awfully soft skin for a roadrunner crocodile.

Son:  This is what roadrunner crocodile’s skin is like.

Mom:  You have awfully flat teeth for a roadrunner crocodile.

Son:  Did you know that roadrunner crocodiles eat a lot of apples?

Mom:  (silence)

Son: (silence) (leans in, whispers) Okay, I am ready for a bath.

Mom:  Oh, good.
