Rockstar: Mum. Do you know what Grandmum’s favorite penguin is?
Me: Grandmum has a favorite penguin?
Rockstar: <nodding convincingly> Yeah. She does.
Me: Uh… Why?
Rockstar: <like he’s making a big announcement> Her favorite is the King Penguin. It doesn’t peck you.
Me: You mean other penguins peck you?
Rockstar: <nodding convincingly> Yeah. They do.
Me: Are you sure? Why?!
Rockstar: I don’t know. <shrugs> Ask Grandmum.
Me: She didn’t say anything about penguins, did she?
Rockstar: <nodding convincingly> Yeah. She did.
Me: How does someone end up talking about penguins, anyway?
Rockstar: I said, “What’s your favorite penguin?”
Me: I mean WHY does anyone ask what someone’s favorite penguin is??
Rockstar: <like I’m stupid> Be-cause, I want to know what her favorite penguin is.
