I don’t share enough of my random conversations with you, so I’ll offer this morning’s breakfast chatter.
Hay: What do you want to do for breakfast.*
Poppy: I don’t know.
Hay: I wasn’t sure if you wanted pancakes since you bought syrup. I’ll make pancakes.
Poppy: Do you want me to make pancakes?
Hay: No, you bought the syrup, I’ll make the pancakes. … Assuming I can find a bowl.
Poppy: (staring at Hay) Are you going to get a bowl?
Hay: There aren’t any big enough.
Poppy: There are bowls right over there! How many pancakes do you think I can eat? I can’t eat 10 pancakes!
Hay: Well, today you’re eating 10 pancakes.
Poppy: I’m not eating 10 fucking pancakes!!! I’ll eat 2 or 3!
Hay: (laughs hysterically at me) Okay, I’ll make the pancakes. Where’s the vegetable oil?
Poppy: We don’t have any right now.
Hay: Oh. Hmm, we have olive oil.
Poppy: I used it on the pork chops last night and they were really good!
Hay: I have the burner turned down low, I don’t know why they’re burning.
Poppy: That’s the really hot burner. Use any other burner. … HAY! YOU’RE USING THE WRONG BURNER.
Hay: It’s fine!!!! … This burner’s too hot. I’m switching burners.
