Me: See that car over there? The red one?
Sg: In front of us?
Me: Right. That’s a special kind of car called a Ferrari. They go really fast.
Sg: Well, I think you should buy me one of those cars.
Me: Sorry to break it to you, but if I ever have the money for a Ferrari, I’m going to buy one and keep it for myself.
Sg: Then can I ride in it with you?
Me: Sure. We’ll have to figure out how to get a car seat into a Ferrari.
Sg: Mama can have this car, and you can have the Ferrali, and I’ll ride with you!
Me: Sounds like a plan.
Sg: It might be nice to have a brother.
Me: Are you saying you would like to have a brother?
Sg: Of course I would like to have a brother.
Me: I have to tell you that that seems really unlikely.
Sg: But you and Mama can get me a brother.
Me: But we’re not going to. Besides, don’t the dogs already chase your friends around the house and chew on your toys?
Sg: Well, yes.
Me: So then what do you need a brother for.
Sg: You could just go to the brother store and get a brother.
Me: Do brothers come from a brother store?
Me: So where did you come from?
Sg: The… daughter store.
Me: Huh. Maybe.
Sg: You tell Mama, deal?
Me: Tell her what?
Sg: That I think we should get a brother.
Me: I’ll tell her, but, again: not going to happen. And you have to tell her about the plan to get a new car.
Sg: I’ll tell Mama that we need to get a Catardi.
