Dialog, Part 27

Bubba: I love my Scarlet Macaw*! She's such a sweet person!

Me: She is sweet, but she's not a person.

Bubba: ?

Me: Scarlet Macaws are birds. You are a person.

Bubba: No, I Bubba.

Me: Yes, you're Bubba, but you're also a person. Just like I'm a person, Papa is a person, Nana is a person, Grandma is a person.

Bubba: No, I Bubba. I a handsome devil like my Papa**.

Me: Snorting and doubled over Yes, darlin', yes you are!

* It's a resin figurine hanging in the kids' bathroom. It gets kissed and loved on. A lot.
** He has a graphic t-shirt from Old Navy that has that printed on the front. He's quite proud of it. Obviously.

I had the boys at work briefly today while their Mum went to the dentist. I went to my university cafe to buy Boy Z a snack. The cashier said, "What a handsome young man! Must get his looks from his mother."

Ouch.
