A breakfast discussion of Eloise this morning then led to this conversation:
Spouse: If you had a girlfriend, Buddy, it would be Eloise. Definitely.
Boy Wonder: No, Dad. If YOU had a girlfriend it would be Eloise.
500Jerk: Hey! Dad already has a girlfriend. It's me.
Boy Wonder: Well, he can have other girlfriends. Girlfriends other than you.
Boy Wonder and 500Jerk: [chorus] LIKE THE LADIES AT THE SPICE RACK! THE LADIES AT THE SPICE RACK!
Spouse: [slightly embarrassed silence]
Boy Wonder and 500Jerk: [paying no attention; shouting at each other] JINX! JINX! JINX!
Here's the thing about a breakfast conversation Chez 500Jerk: You need to exercise extreme caution in introducing any topic. Because, really? You never know where it might lead.
