Jack: Who’s “they”
me: They who?
Jack: That’s what I’m asking.
me: I don’t know what you’re saying.
Jack: When they say they, who are they?
me: Who are you talking about. Who’s they?
Jack: That’s what I just asked you!
me: Do you mean in general? The general they?
Jack: They’re the military?
Jack: This joke is sooo funny but it has a bad word in it that I have to say if I tell you the joke.
Jack: Well the ending is funny and it’s “…everyone but me is an idiot!!!” Sorry. I tried that joke out on the bus last year.
Jack: You don’t want to know how that turned out.
Jack: This pasta is good!
me: Thanks. Glad you like it.
Jack: Did you know that a wasp lays its eggs on a spider and when the babies hatch they eat the spider and save the vital organs for last, so the spider’s alive while it’s being devoured?
me: (looking down at my pasta)
Jack: Gross huh?
(P.S. Jack’s quoting Calvin and Hobbes directly now. He memorized the wasp story verbatim. I thought he was telling me something he learned at school. Either way, still GROSS!)
