Wednesday, January 6, 2010M: "Jake, you are a tree today. Ha ha ha. What kind of tree are you? You're a confused tree because you're green when you should be all brown. It's winter, Jake."
I am wearing a green corduroy, long sleeve shirt with brown pants.
M: "You don't want to be a shrub. Do you want to be a shrub? 'Shrub Cordova?' No."
I ask M. who she thinks would win in a fight between Punky Brewster and Arnold from 'Diff'rent Strokes.'
M: "I don't know who that is."
J: "Arnold? He's that 30 year-old man who played a 12 year-old kid on a TV show from the 80's."
M: "I didn't watch that. I also didn't watch 'Punky Brewster.' How can you watch TV when you're a tree, Jake?"
