Buffets and Homeless People
Or my alternate title “You had to be there”.
Jack: Can we go in and watch one of the homeless shows?
me and Dennis: (?)
Dennis: What are you talking about?
Jack: You know, the shows that have the homeless people?
me: What show is that?
Dennis: Do you mean the shows about home improvement? Building?
Jack: Yeah, yeah, the show that they rebuild a house and fix stuff.
me: (stifling a laugh) It’s not for homeless people…
Jack: They didn’t have a home before it was built.
Jack: Mom, can we have one of those buffets for a snack?
me: A what? I don’t know what you mean.
Jack: The buffet thing you were telling me about that goes in a glass?
me: Umm…any more details?
Jack: You stack different things in a glass. Remember?
me: Ohhhh, you mean a PARFAIT.
Jack: Isn’t that what I said?
me: A buffet is the big piece of furniture in the dining room.
Jack: Well I wouldn’t eat one of those. So yeah, let’s go get that parfait going.
