On Determining Gender in (Magic?) Cats

Overheard from the backseat on the way to Target this afternoon:

Kate:  “If Cloudy were magic and could turn into a human, I’d marry him.”

Mark:  “Why?”

Kate:  “He’s seen me naked.  And he’s a boy.  I’d HAVE to marry him.”

Mark:  “Maybe he CAN turn into a human but he doesn’t, because he only likes you as a friend.”

Kate:  “Cloudy LOVES me.”

Mark:  “Maybe.  And how do you even know he’s a boy?”

Kate:  “He MUST be a boy.  His farts are TERRIBLE.”


In the car on the way to preschool this morning…

Mark:  “I want to marry someone.”

Me:  ?

Mark:  “I want to marry someone.  I just don’t know who.”

Me:  “You’ve got plenty of time to worry about this, son.”

Mark:  “But I want to marry someone.”

Me:  “This isn’t something you have to have wrapped up when you’re 4.  Most people don’t get married until their 20s or 30s.”

Mark doesn’t reply, but his face makes it clear that in his opinion, most people are wasting a lot of time.
