“Mommy told me to put the icing on first,” I overheard Chooch telling Henry.
“Wait, what did I tell you?” I said overtop of Henry groaning, “That’s just great.”
“To put icing on the toaster streudel first,” Chooch answered.
“Oh shit, is THAT what you were asking me yesterday while I was exercising?” (Seriously, he waits until I’m in the middle of Bodies in Motion* to expect me to start parenting him.)
“Wonderful,” Henry sighed. “Did you do it?” he asked Chooch.
“No! I didn’t think I should, so I put the icing on after,” Chooch said, sounding appalled that Henry even had to ask.
“Thank god,” Henry said. “That would have been a nice toaster fire. Chooch, if you ever have questions about cooking, please call me. Don’t ask your mother.”
*I enjoy working out to exercise programs where people are wearing LA Gears.
