I don’t wanna be a cowboy!
me: Oh look! Horseback riding lessons!
Jack: (grunts a bit but doesn’t look away from his plate of eggs and bacon…”Sunday bacon” as he calls it)
me: I took lessons when I was 9! Do you wanna! It’s so much fun… Sighhhhh…
me: It’s a lot if fun, and once you learn, you never forget.
Jack: Didn’t you say you got really sore from it?
me: Well, that was the one time I rode with your dad for 4 hours to the Grand Canyon. You would only have to ride maybe 30 minutes a lesson.
Jack: I don’t want lessons. That’s for girls!
me: What about cowboys? John Wayne’s not a girl!
Jack: It’s also not 1943.
(How does he do that with the accurate years???)
