Time; Futbol

Mama is in the shower.

Mookie: Mama, what time is it?

Me:  I’m not sure exactly. About seven.

Mookie: No, what time is it?

Me: Seven.

Mookie: But what time is it?

Me (surely getting it right this time): Seven o’clock.

Mookie: Mama, what time is it?

Me (giving up on the guesses): Baby, I don’t know what you mean. Can you explain it to me?

Mookie: What times is it?

Me (aha!): 7:01.

Mookie: Thank you, Mama.

Mama is making crepes and trying to flip them using only the pan. Mookie finds this very entertaining and likes to come watch.

Me (successfully flipping): Two in a row!

Mookie: Goooool!

One thought on “Time; Futbol

  1. It was the plural that tipped you off? I was thinking she was going for “Time to make the donuts!” or some less commercial version of that joke. It sent my mind in the right direction. In the past, she’s wanted simpler answers–she’ll ask what time it is, and we’ll say, “8:40,” and she’ll say, “So, 8.” The plural sounded like it might be her way of asking for the expanded version. –MM
