On the morning drive to school...
Impertinent Daughter, musingly: "I wonder what we're going to do in Athletics today?"
Jo, suddenly seized by mischievous impulse: "Maybe you'll learn how to defeat the invading Mongol hordes!"
ID, blinking: "That's... that... would be totally awesome!! Swords!! Spears!! Bashing people! I could do that!"
Impossible Son, piping up from the back seat after the daughter is dropped off at school: "I know how to defeat the Mongolly Horns!" (because he has his mother's hearing glitch)
Jo, trying not to laugh: "Oh yeah? How?"
Impossible Son, beaming: "Give them your chocolate chip cookies! You are going to bake some today... right? Right?"
I guess I know a hint when I hear one!
