seven-year-old snippets (conversations with mom)

“Mom, I have to tell you something funny that I love.”

“What’s that…?”

“At soccer, when my team is switching people – like when I’m on the field and one of my teammates is taking my spot – my coach starts yelling ‘SUBS! SUBS!’ and I’m laughing to myself and thinking ‘Oooh, like I get a sandwich when I get off the field!?'”

“THIS IS THE BEST THING EVER, I’M NEVER EVEN GOING TO TELL YOU WHAT ‘SUB’ IS SHORT FOR.”

“What? Well, now you have to.”

“Ugh. It’s short for substitute…”

“Oh my gosh, substi-TOOT!? THIS IS TOO MUCH FOR ME TO HANDLE.”
