DSCN1271

ME: Look, bud. Two bunnies.

NICK: What are they doing?

ME: Oh. Oh…they’re…mating.

NICK: What does mating mean?

ME: Oh, dear sweet Jesus.

NICK: What?

ME: Nothing.

NICK: Why did you say dear sweet Jesus?

ME: I…I…

NICK: What does mating mean?

ME: Well, they’re…making a baby bunny.

NICK: WHAT? HOW ARE THEY DOING THAT???

ME: Okay, well, they…um…rub against each other and then that makes a baby bunny.

NICK: WHEN IS THE MOMMY GONNA LAY EGGS?

ME: Bunnies don’t lay eggs. The mommy carries the baby bunny in her tummy.

NICK: WHAT??? For how long?

ME: I don’t know, actually.

NICK: Same as people?

ME: No. People take nine months.

NICK: And that’s a loooooong time.

ME: Ages.

NICK: Wait…where does the baby bunny come out?

ME: Oh. Well…um…

NICK: Where does it come out?

ME: Well, it comes out…

NICK: LOOK, DAD! A SPIDER!

ME: A SPIDER??? SHOOT IT WITH YOUR SQUIRT GUN! SHOOT IT!

NICK: BANG! BANG! BANG! I GOT IT, DADDY! THAT SPIDER IS DEAD!

ME: GOOD FOR YOU BUDDY!

NICK: I GOT THE SPIDER!

ME YEAH!

NICK: Where did the bunnies go?

ME: There they are. Now they’re just eating.

NICK: Oh.

ME: Do you have any questions about eating?

NICK: No.
