We took the kids to a beautiful outdoor cafe for dinner last night. It was like eating in a jungle. We were surrounded by gorgeous plants and trees and butterflies and flowers.
Me: Look! Grady, do you see the parrot over there in that tree?
Grady: Wow! Dad! Look! A parrot!
Jason: That’s not a parrot. It’s a flower. Annie Bea, can you see that flower? See? It’s orange and yellow. Way up there. See it?
Me: No. I’m pretty sure that’s a parrot.
Jason: I think it’s a flower.
Me: I don’t think so.
The waiter comes over to fill our water glasses.
Me: Oh, excuse me. Can you tell us what that gorgeous bird is up there? My husband thinks it’s a flower.
Waiter: That? That’s a nerf football.
