Megan has lately gotten into drawing cartoons of our family, based on conversations from this blog. I will post about the specifics of that later, but I wanted to write down this conversation before I forgot.
Megan was trying to think of a name for her cartoon strip. It is drawn in Japanese Chibi style — very cute!
Megan: I was thinking of maybe calling it “Chibi [something].”
Albert: You could call it Chib-Yee. Get it?
Angela: I don’t know if most people would know what chibis are though.
Albert: (looking at Angela) Well, you didn’t know who Joe Montana was either.
Daniel: *I* don’t know who Joe Montana is.
Angela: You’re too young.
Daniel: Was he from a state?
Daniel: Was he named after a state?
Daniel: Did he live in a state?
Angela: No. He was a baseball player.
(Albert stares at Angela.)
Angela: I mean, a football player! Yeah, he was a football player! I meant to say that! I really did!
(Albert puts his head down on the table and pretends to sob.)
