How He Understands It

Sometimes my son says stuff we’re not expecting.

Because it’s not even the subject on hand.

Or ever going to be the subject.

Like, “hey, Sis… I know you’re going to be a mom…and…

“And lay eggs.”

My daughter only chews her sandwich.

My son clarifies.  “I mean,” he gestures, ” lay people.”

My daughter bites. “What kind of people?”

And it hits him.  “Sissies.  And daddies!” he exclaims.

At which time–with minor snickering–the subject is settled.

And two kids finish lunch all the wiser.
