oh, to be 9 again
Dandy: Mom, something really weird is happening to me.
It's happened twice now.
(His voice is fraught with worry)
What has happened?
At night-time, I am really sleepy and tired and I only want to go to bed.
Me: So what is happening that is weird?
Dandy: That. That is it. I am sleepy and tired and I can barely move my body. I think something is really wrong.
Oh honey. I feel that way every night, right about dinner time. It's called being tired -- this has only happened to you twice?
Oh, I want to be you.
