An Actual Conversation: In Which Maintaining Visual Contact Would Have Been Helpful

January 29, 2015


Magic Princess: (facing away, paying close attention to breakfast) What happened in school yesterday ?

Lady Bug: My friend taught me about this new kind of sandwich! It’s so, sooooo good! I can’t wait to have more.

Magic Princess: (still turned away, sort of paying attention) What kind, honey?

Lady Bug: Crack.*

Magic Princess: ????!!!!!!

*It turns out she’d stopped right in the middle of the word “cracker”. Cracker and cucumber sandwiches.  It was hard to say all that while packing a lunch. My heart is beating again now. Really.
