Khalid: Momma, when I die…?
Me: (putting my drink down slowly) Yes Khalid?
Khalid: And my body goes into the earth…?
Khalid: Will people remove my fossils and put them in a museum?
Me: No dear, they won’t.
Khalid: Why not?
Me: Because you’re not a dinosaur dear.
Iman: (is looking through rows of flavored vitamins as we’re waiting in line at a pharmacy) Momma, why does this have a picture of icecream?
Me: Hmm? Because those vitamins supposedly taste like icecream.
Me: So that kids will like taking them.
Iman: This one has cherries.
Me: It’s probably cherry flavored.
Iman: This one has fairies on it. Is it fairy-flavored?
Me: I don’t think so, I’m not sure what fairies would taste like.
Iman: I know. Meat.
Iman: Yeah, because that’s what bodies are made out of. Meat.
Me: You’re a very sensible girl.
Iman: I know.
