Recent Conversation #2

*Context is helpful for this conversation.  Last week the Black house was in the midst of stomach funk hell.  We all had the stomach flu and were releasing data from portals 1 and 2.  One morning we were sitting at the table for breakfast talking about how terrible it was that we were all sick.*

Ezra: Daddy, do you think Warnie will get sick next?
Daddy:  I don't think dogs can get sick from humans.
Asher:  (with confidence) Ezra, Warnie won't get sick.  He doesn't have a bottom.  Just a pee-pee.

Me: Ruby Tuesday.
Ezra: Are they only open on Tuesday?
Me: No, but that's a really good question.
