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

"Ben took my patient." Grasshopper announced shortly after clambering out the car after school on Friday.

"Ben took your patient?"

Solemn nod.

"I'm not sure that I understand. What is a patient?"

"It when you get mad 'cause you don't wanta wait anymore!"

"Oh! You mean PATIENCE! Ben took your patience?"

"Yes! I wanted to pway wif da blue car an I asked him if it could be my turn next and him said "yes!" but him not GIVE IT TO ME!

Foot stomp. Pouty lip.

"I'm sorry honey. That's tough, huh?"

Stifling laughter.

"Yeah. Him took my patient and I didn't have it no more."

Long-suffering sigh.
