I don’t even remember what started the conversation. My Varmint and Critter were in the back seat of the Equinox, watching Marvels’ “The Avengers” while I was driving us home from Grandma Jane’s Orchard tonight, when some inane subject of conversation came up and as a result of it, I said, “It’s a good thing you guys are cute. And you get that from your Dad. Yup, you got your Dad’s good looks, and my……and my…..”
And I drew a blank.
So I waited for them to fill it in.
But was met with silence.
So I said a little louder, “Yup, you got your Dad’s good looks, and my….and my……and my…..”
Nothing. Crickets chirping.
“HEY!” I barked! “Is anyone listening to me?” And I gave them my best ‘stink-eye’ from the rear-view mirror.
“Yeah, Mom,” Varmint said, without moving her eyes from the screen. “But we’re trying to watch a movie here.”
Well, I don’t rightly know what they got from me, but it’s a damn good thing they’re cute.
