The following is a conversation I recently had with my wife J- (while she was resting on the couch) and our 8-year-old son D-, about our 5-year-old daughter M-:
Me (asking D- and a dozing J-, wondering if M- was in the bathroom or off playing somewhere): Where's M-?
D-: She's in the playroom
J- (oddly forcefully, as if we're all fools to have forgotten about this while she lay there resting, secretly wide awake): No, she's out getting her hair done!
Me (trying to take her at face value, since she's usually the authority on things like this): What?? Where?
M- (from playroom): What do you neeeed?
Me: ...Did you just have a dream that M- went out to a hair salon?
You may enjoy my previous J- conversations, D- conversations, and M- conversations.
