Ducky: Psst. Hey, Lady.
Me: Leave her alone Ducky. She’s not going to give you any cereal.
Ducky: Can see into the future now, Daddy?
Me: Generally, no. In this case, yes.
Ducky: I think I would have noticed by now if you were clairvoyant. I’ve known you for over two years.
Me: Time flies when you have no sense of it.
Ducky: That’s a myth.
Me: Regardless, you’re not allowed that kind of cereal.
Ducky: This rule is new.
Me: Ten years old.
Me: You can only have certain cereals. Some are bad for you.
Ducky: That’s a rule?
Ducky: How about eating cereal in bed? That seems against the rules.
Me: That’s more of a societal norm.
Ducky: Looks like society is breaking down. Perhaps we can toast the end of civilization with some unapproved cereals.
Me: ‘Fraid not. Don’t want you to get sick.
Ducky: Treats don’t make me sick.
Me: No. No they don’t. Maybe we should get you one of those.
Ducky: In a bowl with milk?
Ducky: Rule or societal norm?
Me: Just weird.
Ducky: I love you, Daddy.
Me: I love you, Ducky.
