Today I felt like shit (bad cold) and the Tech Guru went out before work and got us some bagels. He got two for me, and I left one sitting there until about mid-afternoon, at which point, Pudding decided that he wanted to eat it.
So I let him have it.
Of course immediately after I hand over the bagel, Punksin decides she wants some too. And it may sound incredibly stupid to leave this to a 6-year old and 3-year old to work out, but that’s exactly what I did. The way I saw it, it was now Pudding’s bagel and it was up to him to share it with his sister.
Which he does, but only one quarter of the bagel.
Punksin, who is not happy at all with this miserly behavior, decides to complain. During which Pudding decides to commence with licking the jelly off the remaining 3 quarters.
Punksin keeps complaining (she’s real fucking good at that, God help us), and Pudding, who must have been about as tired of hearing her whining as I was, hands her a licked piece to shut her up be nice.
At which point she responds: I don’t want THAT. It has your DNA all OVER it!!!
I tried to remember if I knew about DNA when I was 6 years old and then it hit me: I don’t think ANYONE knew about DNA when I was 6 years old.
(Okay, I looked it up, and ye olde double helix was discovered in 1953. But I guarantee you it was not the topic of general conversation amongst the 6-year old set in 1976.)
