Morals and grammar at the dinner table


Boy 1*: That was spicy.

I: Yup.

Boy 1: I’ve tried something else who was spicy.

I: You say, that was spicy. Who refers to a person. We don’t eat people.

Boy 2: That be not right.

I: That would not be right.

Boy 3: Yeah. Only aliens eat people.

Boy 2 and 1: Yeah. Yeah.

*To obscure persons, the number merely refers to the order in which they entered the conversation.

It’s easier to pretend that it’s raining,

than that it’s cold.
