T was standing in the kitchen and we were chatting back and forth. Suddenly he bursts out:
To Infinity and Beyond!
Me: There’s 4
T: 4? I know there is 1 and 2 but 4? What are you doing that it is called 4?
Me (gasping): There’s 4 (dissolve into laughter.)
We went back and forth a bit. Me laughing and sputtering 4 and T staring at me like I am crazy. Finally I got it out.
Me: 4th movie of Toy story.
T looks at me with raised eyebrow.
Me: In response to you saying To infinity and beyond. Buzz Lightyear?
T shook his head.
Earlier I was trying to talk him into doing a more up to date documentary on the Canadian provinces. They had watched one today in Social Studies. It was created in 1997. 25 years ago. There have been changes.
He felt it was too much work. I then made a comment about rising waters and Manitoba being ok because the water would never reach us. T stared at me like I had grown another head.
As I said and he agreed there is never a dull conversation when I am around.
Lots of things. That could have been my answer. Instead I just laughed because really it is a very good question.
T and I were having lunch together on the couch when I took a swig of my water. It tasted a little funny. I thought maybe because I was drinking out of a plastic cup and the water had warmed up. I decided rather then going to test the brita water again I would nag at T to bring the bottled water down and put it in the fridge instead. That whole conversation is a whole other post.
We were getting ready to leave for his dad’s when T went to get a glass of water. I had told him earlier that I had changed the brita filter not that long ago when he found the third unopened one. I have already used two of said filters. He looks at the filter in his hand and then at me.
Mom you did not change the filter I have it right here.
That is third of three pack. I just used #2.
He goes to get water out of the fridge and I wait for him to take a sip or two.
Does it taste green to you?
Yeah. The water? Does it taste green?
Mom why are you tasting colors? Do you mean like lake water?
Yes like algae, I could not remember the word.
T shook his head and I laughed.
Tasting color. I never thought of it like that before. But it did taste like that. Green.
