This was our conversation on our rainy walk home from school today. Miss Peach was blowing bubbles the entire way...I could not stop chuckling at this random exchange...
Little Man: "Do you like mimes?"
Me: "I'm not so fond of mimes."
Miss Peach: "Why doesn't Daddy like mimes?"
Me: "Well, I think Daddy feels a lot like Mommy when it comes to mimes."
Little Man: "Why don't you guys like them?"
Me: "Well...I think it has to do with them coming up to you and trying to pull you into their act. I don't like that...I have no idea what they're going to do, and I feel like I have no control of the situation...and I don't like that."
Miss Peach: "Well, there's a lot of mimes in Paris. That's why I'm going to have my honeymoon in London."
Little Man: "If I see a mime, I'm going to run away from it. Will it chase me?"
Me: "No honey, mimes don't chase you. They're passive, I've never heard of a mime attacking someone."
Little Man: "If a mime saw me and I tried to cross the street, would he step in front of me and stop me?"
Me: "Sweety, mimes aren't aggressive. They won't chase you down the street or trip you if you don't want to play along."
Little Man: "Well, if I see a mime, I'm gonna throw him in the garbage can."
Me: "Well alright then."
