“My friends need to be punished.”

Conversation in the car yesterday between me and the Bugs.

Butterfly: Daaaaaad, why’d you make Stitch so scary on my squiggle napkin?

Me: Because your squiggle said “Draw me Stitch.”

Butterfly: Yeah, but you didn’t have to make him scary.

Me: Sure I did. It’s October. You get 31 days of ghosts and monsters in October.

Butterfly: Stitch is kind of a monster.

Me: Sure.

Butterfly: Why was he holding the fabric from Lilo’s dress? I didn’t get that.

Ladybug: Because he ate Lilo.

Butterfly: [ CRIES ]
