Short conversation of the day…
Henry: (out of no where) Mom, I hope a scary clown doesn’t come into our apartment.
Me: (a little giggle) What?! No, Henry; that won’t happen. A scary clown will not come into our apartment. I promise. It just won’t happen.
Henry: Well, OK. (not really certain and his face is very serious).
Me: Where did you see a scary clown?
Henry: On Youtube.
Me: OK, that won’t happen. I am secretly thinking — with all the movie promotions of It and Halloween coming up… I guess this was bound to happen.
Footnote: We don’t have a TV in our apartment, but we let him watch a few things on his iPad. He was watching a “family clip” where a dad dressed up like a scary clown. Yeeeesh!
