On the ride home from the Disney on Ice show at the TD Garden, the family had the greatest conversation in the car led by my nearly 5 years old son Luke. The conversation started with what they were going to be when they grew up and was quickly taken over by Luke, who would like to own a restaurant so he can eat for free. But when questioned about his restaurant, hilarity ensued:
Me: What will you serve?
Him: Anything people want to eat, brownies, mac and cheese, anything
Him: Yes, but I don’t want to eat that.
Me: What if it was covered with chocolate?
Me: How much will you charge people? $8? (He is fixated with the number 8 in regards to money)
Him: $1 for mac and cheese, $1 for pizza, $1 brownies, $1000 for a hamburger.
Me: How much for shrimp?
Him: 1 fish.
Me: 1 Fish for shrimp?
Me: What will you name the restaurant?
Him: Choccoli! (Chocolate and Broccoli combined)
And on and on. I must admit, to let him run with this conversation was a great deal of fun for all of us. It is amazing how clever a little kid can be when given the room.
