I heard my dad outside talking.
"Huh? Her? No, she doesn't have time to come out and play. Maybe next time."
The screen door opened, and my dad walked inside.
"Who were you talking to? What was that about?" I asked him curiously.
"Oh, it was a squirrel. He was looking for a nut. I told him you couldn't come out and play right now." He laughed at his own hilarity and started to walk away.
"Oh, funny, ha ha! Just remember that the nut doesn't fall too far from the tree!" I hollered after him.
Parents. They think they are sooooo funny.
And then I laughed.
