1. Mo: Hey Mom! I know an animal that stays up all night and sleeps in the day.
Me: Really? Which one.
Mo: Um, let me think a minute.
[One minute later.]
Mo: I remember! A pasta.
(Get it? A pasta, opossum.)
2. Mo: Hey Dad?
Mo: I got CASH!
Dad: You do? How much.
[Mo turns his pockets inside out and lifts up a couple coins.]
Mo: I got some quarters, and some diamonds.
(Dimes=diamonds... wouldn't it be nice.)
3. At the Magic Kingdom in Disney World.
Me: Look! It's Mickey/Minnie/Cinderella/Chip and Dale
Me: Don't you want to go see them? You could get an autograph. Or give them a hug.
Mo: That's OK. It's just a guy in a costume.
(He equated it to seeing people in costume on Halloween. So what that we're seeing Mickey Mouse in Disney World, I saw six Spidermans - Spidermen? - when I was trick-o-treating.)
