Alex: What is for dinner?
Me: mmmmmffff. I don’t know. How hungry are you?
Alex: I don’t know.
Me: On a scale of one to hungry, how hungry are you?
Me: That’s really hungry.
Alex: I don’t really understand your scale. I’m fish hungry.
Me: Fish is not very hungry.
Alex: You have weird scales.
Me: That’s a normal scale.
Alex: Then, I am hippo.
Me: That’s very hungry.
Alex: Then some other childhood game animal less than hippo.
Me: What do hippos eat?
Alex: Small animals.
Alex: I’m pretty sure they’re carnivores.
Me: But, they have such cute teeth.
Alex: No. They have fangs.
Me: In the cartoons, they have teeth like marshmallows.
Alex: Look it up.
Me: (google images-hippo teeth)
Wow. Those are not
like the cartoons.
Alex: Hippos are ferocious.
Me: But, look. (google images-cartoon hippo teeth) They’re cute. Totally marshmallow teeth.
Alex: In their natural state, they are not very kid friendly.
Me: I see that.
Alex: Hippos are fast.
Alex: Super fast.
Me: I could outrun a hippo.
Alex: No. Google.
Me: (google images-how fast can a hippo run?) [Picture of a man being chased by a hippo]
Me: oops. I’m still on images.
Alex: ( googles without image filter)
Alex: I will get in the car and go get us some foods.
