No studs, either

A late night conversation in the car.

BUTTERFLY: I can’t wait until I’m ten!

ME: Why?

BF: Because then I can get my piercings!

ME: Yep.

BF: I just have to decide where to get them.

ME: In your ears, of course. I’m not paying for nipple rings.

BF: No! Ew! Ew! Ew! Ew! Ew! Ew! Ew! Ew! Ew! Ew! No!

Parenting

Forty-Five is on TV, expressing (in his distinctively third-grade reading-level way) his displeasure over Congress’ lack of funds for his border wall.

The Butterfly walks in, stares for a moment, and says “Is that Kellyanne Con-Artist on Trump’s left?”

Though secretly amused by her wordplay, I feel it is my parental duty to correct her.

“No sweetie. Kellyanne is on Trump’s right. She’s on your left.”
