Bedtime Story
Tonight, ST's bedroom, 15 minutes ago.

ST: Mom, can you tell me a story?

Me: Sure. [Proceed to tell delightful story of little boy and his mom going to eat ice cream, but not enough to spoil their dinner.]

ST: OK, Mom. Now I will tell you a story.

Me: I'm listening.

ST: Once upon a time, there were two tiny tigers. And then a T. Rex came and scared them away. The T. Rex wanted to fight King Kong until he saw a special surprise.

Me: What was the special surprise?

ST: The special surprise was... two tiny, tiny apples! And the T. Rex couldn't see them. But the little boy did!

Me: And what was the little boy's name?

ST: His name was... BlueBoy. [Laughs hysterically, thinking he is very clever.] And then BlueBoy ate the apples. But then a crocodile came and ate Blueboy, and then the T. Rex ate the crocodile. [Dramatic pause.]

Me: And that's how the story ends?

ST: No. That's not the end. Then the monster trucks came, and they jumped over the T. Rex.

Me: And that's the end?

ST: No. That's not the end. The monster trucks ran out of gas. And so they stopped, and the T. Rex stepped on them.

Me: And that's the end?

ST: No. That's not the end. You have to wait until tomorrow for the end.

The suspense is killing me! (And if it doesn't, that T. Rex just might.)
