I thoroughly enjoy nights like tonight.
After supper, it was decided that ice cream was in order. So, it's off to Sonic for some frozen treats.
On the way home we were canvassing some lesser travelled roads and telling the kids that they were haunted. You know the drill: going over a bridge you turn the lights off and tell them that you might hear screams, etc. So, once we'd moved on, the discussion turned into the fact that ghosts weren't real. Hallie inquired about aliens.
Hallie: "What about aliens, Hayden? Are they real?"
Hayden: "Yeah, they're real. But, they only live on Uranus."
..............An established silence before the two grown-ups in the car started snickering...............
Hayden: "What are you laughing at? They do live on Uranus!! ALIENS LIVE ON URANUS!!!!"
Hayden: "It's the seventh planet."
I swear...he never amazes me at how smart he is. I had to go through the helpful sentence (My Very Educated Mother Just Served Us Nine Pizzas) before I knew it was the seventh planet! But, that's not saying much, is it? After all, he did stump me with that Blasobian bit last year.
I still can't believe we were both reduced to laughter by something so juvenile.
I mean, geez...it's not like someone pooted.
