AT RISE: In the car to school, ClaraJane is regaling Mom and Brother with a story about one time at her cousins’ house when her baby doll was thirsty and she was SNEAKING out of bed to fetch her water. Rainwater apparently.
CJ: By the third time it was morning and Uncle Joe was up, and he saw me. And HE said, ‘Better not drink rain water, it’s full of bird poop!’ [giggles]
Gavin: Did you drink any of the water?
CJ: No. It was for Baby Doll.
Gavin: Oh, and Baby Doll can drink anything?
CJ: Uh, NOOO! [condescending tone] She’s a DOLL? Remember? She can’t drink ANYTHING! Don’t you know that?
Gavin: Yeah I KNOW dolls can’t actually drink anything! I was just being interested in your story, jeez!
Mom: [Gently teases CJ for lambasting her listener for suspending his disbelief so well, we all have a great laugh, and I don’t care if this holds together as a legit funny anecdote or not because all that matters is I love them and #EvidenceTheyGetAlong.]
