Ask a silly question...

My five-year-old son never talks about school. Even when asked and threatened, he offers up "nothing" as his stock answer. The only thing he'll talk about (grudgingly) is lunch. Here is an excerpt fom Wednesday night:

Dad: What did you have for lunch today?

Ryan: Fish.

Dad: Awesome! Was it the brown, crunchy fish, or the white, flaky fish?

Ryan: Crunchy fish.

Dad: Excellent. And what did they serve it with?

Ryan: (pause) Tongs.

Winnah? Boy.
