Recently we were loading into the car, heading to a playdate, when one of our neighbors said, "Hello."
Mo (to Neighbor): Do you know where we're going?
Neighbor: Um. To your friend's house?
Mo: Yep! Do you know who it is?
Mo: It's my friend Jackie!
Neighbor: Oh yes, she's a very nice girl.
Me (to Neighbor): Boy.
Neighbor: Right, boy.
Mo: You remember him, right? From Halloween. We went trick-o-treating at your house.
Neighbor: Oh sure, that kid in the funny costume. I remember him.
Mo: Yeah, he was a fire fighter.
Neighbor: That's right, the fire fighter.
Mo folds his arms and turns serious. Then he deadpans:
Mo: He ... was.... Batman.
