On a walk with Handsome a couple nights ago, I spotted a squirmy brown thing on the sidewalk:
Me: “Hey, look at that big earth worm!” So, I reach down. And pause. “Maybe it’s a snake. What do you think?”
Then I poked it. And it squiggled and wiggled and squirmed away into the grass.
Handsome: “That was a snake. You know that right?”
Me: “Hey! I didn’t freak out! I touched a snake, and I didn’t freak out!!!” Hippity-hopping down the sidewalk.
Handsome: “Doesn’t count. You thought it was a worm. And besides, it was a really tiny.”
Me: “It totally counts.” *pout*
Handsome: “You’re cute when you’re trying not to freak out.”
