So I am temporarily a stay at home dad (ie unemployed) and my wife is working in her successful career (she’s like that one song from the 1970’s “I am woman, hear me roar!”)
Anyway, she was roaring at me the other night to do the dishes, since I had been slacking.
So I went to do the dishes when my son came into the kitchen to ask me when I would be picking him up from school the next day.
Except I didn’t hear him properly.
He said: How close to three will you be tomorrow?
I heard: How close to Free Willy will you be tomorrow?
So I answered him.
I said: Well, Jack, I don’t plan on ever being close to Free Willy since one, he’s a whale, and two, he’s free and I doubt he would come to Minnesota as we live in a landlocked state, not including the Mississippi River…..however, I don’t think he’d even try to swim up that for obvious reasons not including salt water and not forgetting…well…I mean…do you realize he’d have to cross through the Panama Canal to get to the mouth of the Mississippi unless he took the long way, which I doubt he’d try and, of course, there is the Suez Canal….so…why did you want to know the answer to that question….isn’t it obvious?
