Jocelyn and Jody
Jocelyn: (tiredly) Yes?
Jody: Can I be a rocket when I grow up?
Jocelyn: No, you can not be a rocket when you grow up.
Jody: Why not?
Jocelyn: Because a rocket is a thing, and you are not a thing. You’re a person.
Jody: But that new kid Jackie said his dad says he’s gonna send Jackie’s mom to the moon. How can Jackie’s mom go to the moon if she’s not a rocket?
Jocelyn: (thinks for a moment) Jackie needs to keep his mouth shut.
Jody: Jackie said his dad says that too.
Jocelyn: Does your daycare worker know?
Jody: (shrugs) Prolly. Jackie’s mom is my new daycare worker. She doesn’t look like a rocket. But Sammy says her tits look like torpedoes.
Jody: Well that’s what Sammy says.
Jocelyn: I think we need to look for another daycare.
