Hot pineapple phone call
Jack: Hi Dad!
Dennis: Hey how was your day?
Jack: Pretty good. We’re going to Mommy’s class now.
Dennis: Oh…what did you eat for dinner?
Jack: (harsh whisper to me) What was that stuff called?
me: Pineapple fried rice.
Jack: It was pineapple fried rice.
Dennis: Sounds good.
Jack: It’s really not as good as it sounds because it had HOT pineapple in it. I mean really, who puts hot pineapple in FRIED RICE!? Sheesh…
Dennis: So you like your pineapple cold?
Jack: Yeah, the way it’s SUPPOSED to be.
(they finish up the call)
me: So you didn’t like my rice, eh?
Jack: Ummm…I did, just not the HOT pineapple.
me: Okay, no hot pineapple next time.
Jack: You know I really think we said HOT pineapple enough tonight. Why do you go ahead and make dinners that start to take over my life?
