Some recent conversations from the Jones' house:
K-"Is this mud?" (referring to the gravy on her porkchop)
Me-"No it isn't mud. Have you ever eaten mud?"
K-"It looks like mud."
Me-"I wouldn't feed you mud. Please, eat your dinner."
Miss M holding a plastic fried egg from her kitchen set:
Me-"No, it's a fried egg."
Several more attempts by Miss M to confirm that she was holding icecream. Thinking I needed to clarify my answer since she didn't know what a fried egg was.
Me-"It's an egg that has been cracked open and cooked."
Feeling like this conversation could go on indefinitely.....while I'm trying to watch something on the TV.
Me-"It's a fried egg but you can use it for anything that you like."
M-"Fine. I'm leaving!" as she slides off the couch and goes back in the playroom.
Leaving me with a WTH just happened expression!
