Dinner time. We’re eating Quinoa With Moroccan Winter Squash and Carrot Stew:
Me: Do you like it? It’s quinoa. Quinoa is an ancient grain.
Him: What was it like when it was new?
[silence. I continue eating, not realizing I’ve been totally dissed.]
Other Him: Um, Mommy? Do you know what Daddy meant?
Other Him: He meant that you are old enough to have seen quinoa when it was new.
Both Hims giggle.
