More Conversations with Grasshopper (You Can't Make This Stuff Up)

JR: "Hey buddy, where did all of your fish sticks go?"

Grasshopper: "Dem in my tummy!"

Me: "All of them?"

Grasshopper: "Yep!"

JR: "Is there a party in your tummy?"

Grasshopper: "Yes! A Tummy Party!"

Me: "Well, what about your strawberries? They want to go to the party too!"

Grasshopper: "Whoopsie!"

[Begins cramming strawberry chunks into his mouth. Chews. Goes back for more until they're gone too.]

Grasshopper: "Now da strawberries are at my Tummy Party!"

JR: "I bet they're having fun!"

Grasshopper: "They are going to have cupcakes and a pinata at the Tummy Party!"

Me: "Oh, really?"

[Struggles not to laugh.]

Grasshopper: "And da Monkey Boy* is there!"

Me: "The Monkey Boy is in your tummy?"

Grasshopper: "Yep! I eat him!"

JR: "You ate The Monkey Boy?"

[Grins widely and nods his head enthusiastically while patting his tummy.]

Me: "That is so silly!"

Grasshopper: "No Mommy, dat's NAUGHTY!"

* The Monkey Boy is Grasshopper's best bud.
