Me: "How was school today, zj?"
Zj: "Oh, it was awesome! We had a SUBSTITUTE bus driver and she almost forgot to let Amanda off the bus and everybody laughed about it, even the bus driver, but Amanda didn't really laugh though, I think because she thought she would have to go back to school oh and we had gym today and GUESS WHAT? We got to play CHEESE-BALL!"
Me: "Oh yeah? Do you maybe mean t-ball?"
Zj: "No, Mama, it's CHEESE-BALL. And here's how it goes. See, there's this ball, it's a SPHERE, you know, and it's orange, ya know, like cheese. And you have to catch it, I think, and when you catch it you WIN! Then after you win, you get to lay down and watch a movie. Well, I think that's what happens. Maybe. Nobody ever actually caught it. Well, maybe some of the older kids have caught it sometime, but today, nobody in my class caught it."
Me: "And that's how you play t-ball? I mean cheese-ball? Is there anything else to it?"
Zj: "Mama, what else could there be? I told you already, you get to LAY DOWN AND WATCH A MOVIE when you win! That's the best game ever!"
We're not really, ahem, a sports oriented family, I guess...
