daddy:  oh no, here comes the sun!!! if we were vampires, we’d all be dead!

9yo’s response:  i’ve been working on my chicken impression.  it’s coming along quite well.

daddy [eating frozen slushee]:  whoa

6 and 8yo:  what happened?

daddy: you know when you eat ice cream too fast and you get brain freeze? well it was like that, but in my chest.

6yo:  oh, i know.  i got brain freeze eating a sno cone at school one time, and i was dead for a while.

daddy: …

6yo:  but then i was like, oh, i’m alive again.

daddy:  [nearly crashes truck laughing]
