Jody: Mommy?

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.

Jocelyn: Jody!

Jody: Well that’s what Sammy says.

Jocelyn: I think we need to look for another daycare.

Jocelyn: Yes, dear?

Jody: (points to a nun, seated across the aisle) Is that a penguin?

Jody: Mommy?

Jocelyn: Yes?

Jody: Why do they call it Boxing Day?

Jocelyn: Maybe because it’s the day you throw out all the boxes things came in for Christmas.

Jody: Then why don’t the stores just sell things without boxes?

Jocelyn: I don’t know. Maybe when you’re bigger you can find a better way of doing things.

Jody: I’d just sell things in bags. Then we can call it Bagged Day.

Jocelyn: That’s a good name for it anyway.
