Boys are exciting


(illustration by Dean Beattie)


Jack: Boys are SO exciting!

me: Really?

Jack: Come ON! We like electronics and jet packs and thermal detonators and cable TV!

me: And what do girls like?

Jack: Clothes. Mostly. And shoes. Sigh.

me: Now THAT’S exciting!

Jack: (sizing me up) You look pregnant.

me: WHAT?? (I can actually see my 6-pack these days) The hell, I mean, the heck I do!

Jack: (poke poke) Well…if you lose 5 pounds maybe I can have a stepfather sooner…DUHHH did you ever think of that??

me: ??? (I don’t even know where to begin with that statement)
