An Actual Conversation: Pea Soup

While we were at the pool on Opening Day this weekend, Pumpkin Pie ran into a friend from his T-Ball team.    Because I managed to sunburn my shoulders the day before on a field trip with Pickles, I was sitting in the shade.  I was close enough to see that he was not in trouble, but far enough that I couldn’t hear what he was saying.  He ran over to me to check in.

Pumpkin Pie:  Mom!  I saw Jack from Baseball!

Me:  I saw him come in.  Did you two play together?  

Pea soup. It's not what I thought.

Pumpkin Pie:  Yes.  I asked him what the difference was between roast beef and pea soup.

Me:  Oh, that’s nice.  But kind of a weird thing to ask him.  What is the difference between roast beef and pea soup, anyway?

Pumpkin Pie:  Anyone can roast beef, it takes someone special to pee soup. 

You’ll have to trust me that he totally nailed the timing on that one.  I almost peed soup myself.
