At dinner with my parents
Ben: We don't eat bugs!
Daddy: Some people eat bugs. They eat bugs in the Amazon.
Ben: [blank look]
Lynn: Most people don't eat bugs.
Daddy: Some bugs are really big [holding hands apart about two feet]
Ben: [looks excited]
Daddy: They just discovered some enormous spider. It can eat baby goats [exaggeration]
Lynn [bereft of REM sleep due to our newborn]: If I were having dreams, that would be trouble.
Daddy: [laughs uncontrollably]
