Jack: Mom what if I invented www.
me: As in websites?
Jack: No. Weird, weird world.
me: What do you mean “invented”.
Jack: Like, what if I came up with an idea for a weird WEIRD world that had Daddies laying eggs and stuff.
Jack: Like how bugs lay eggs? So Daddies would lay eggs instead. That’s WEIRD! And then maybe they would have the babies too.
me: Very weird. Is that what your little brain is cooking up?
Jack: Yeah I like to think the opposite sometimes. Like I’m in college and you’re the little kid, or you’re the Daddy and Daddy is the Mommy.
me: Is that fun to think up?
Jack: I don’t know. I just do it. (he thinks for a moment..) Can you skip some of your classes from now on?
me: What? Oh…You mean like my bootcamp?
Jack: Yeah, I miss you when you’re gone.
me: But you’re asleep. I make sure I’m back when you wake up.
Jack: Well it’s just that I know Daddy is there and I just stay in bed because he’s kind of annoying.
me: Not nice Jack.
Jack: Sorry. I mean it’s not the same as having you there.
me: Just think of opposite world. So pretend I’m really home, but just stay in bed until I really get home and then I’ll come up and wake you up. Daddy doesn’t even have to worry about it.
Jack: That’s not opposite world, that’s just lying.
me: Oh. Sorry.
