Sam: "I'm just so excited about this baby shower tonight."
me: "You are? Really?"
Sam: "See, a 'shower' is another word for 'celebration,' and I am all about celebration."
me: "Interesting. When I was your age, I thought a baby shower was a cult-like phenomenon wherein the lights would be turned off and everyone would get in the bathtub with a baby."
Sam: "A better word would really be 'party.' That's what a real celebration is in English, you know. A party."
me: "So you're not upset because you'll probably be the only boy there?"
Sam: [laughs] "You know me, Mommy. I am a real ladies man."
me: "A ladies man?"
Sam: "It's true! Listen, 'Helllooooooo Ladies!'"
me: "OMG. Did Uncle Bubba teach you that?"
