Yesterday, the boy and I were looking at grocery ads, and the following conversation took place:
Boy: Wow, they already have Civil War fruit snacks out.
Me: (envisioning a gummy Confederate Flag) Well, that’s kind of weird .
Boy: Not really, it comes out in a few months.
Me: (realizing what he’s talking about) Oh, you mean the movie.
Boy: Yeah, what did you think I was talking about?
Me: I thought they were for the actual Civil War.
Boy: Like, here’s a Confederate soldier?
Boy: (immitating a kid) Look, I got Lincoln, he’s got a hole through his head.
Me: (stare at boy, horrified)
Boy: Too soon?
Me: (nodding head, but starting to giggle) Yeah, but hopefully Lincoln’s up in Heaven
