Only a hippopotamus will do...

This morning on the drive to the middle school, Sammy and I had an interesting conversation. Today is "red and green" day at school, so Sammy wore a green t-shirt with a red hoodie, long, black basketball shorts, one bright red kneesock (from baseball) and one bright green kneesock (from soccer, borrowed from Joycie's friend Allison) with his white and green Converse shoes. What a sight! He looked so darn cute.

We got in the car and I saw him pulling down his shorts over his bare knees...

Me: Knees cold?
Sammy: A little.
M: If you were Scottish, you'd be used to it. And just think, those Scots don't even wear skivvies under their kilts. They go commando.
S: They're probably smart enough to wear underwear in the winter.
M: No they don't - those Scots are tough men.
S: That'd be cold.
M: Yeah, imagine the winter breeze on your nuts.
S: Their nuts probably shrink.
M: Yeah, their penis must shrink, too... EH! COLD! *sssurrrp* (sucking sound)
S: How do they go pee then?
M: Well, I suppose--
S: Nevermind. I don't want to talk about this anymore.


Also, I heard this song on the radio after I dropped Sammy off... "I Want a Hippopotamus for Christmas." I have never heard that song before... and now I can't get it out of my head. But I like it.
