An Afternoon Conversation
Eugenia: What about SpongeBob?
Will: What about Plankton?
Me: Well, yeah. I'll always love SpongeBob. And Plankton makes me laugh more than just about anyone.
Will: Does that mean you're going to marry him?
Me: No. I already married the person I want to marry.
Macky: Mama, why did you marry Papa?
Me: Because he was sweet and funny and smart and handsome and he treated me really well, and he's my best friend in the world. And I liked being with him more than anybody.
(Dirty looks from all three kids.)
Me: That's before I met all of you. Now, I like being with all of you, more than anybody.
Macky: Do you like him more than meeeee?
Me: I already said: I like all of you.
Macky (sounding kind of disgusted): Just say "No."
