The Sheep

We were driving to school the other day, and Monkey was clearly just off-the-wall goofy. She spent most of the ride cracking herself up, making odd noises.

On the final stretch to her preschool, the road has a bunch of stop signs. We're at the first of these and this happened:

Monkey: MOM!! Did you SEE THAT?!

Me: Uh... did I see what?

Monkey: Over there-- it's a SHEEP.

(pause)

Me: Uh... I don't see a sheep, hon.

(pause)

Monkey: <deep belly chuckle>

We drive on.

The next stop sign takes slightly longer, as there are train tracks and I don't accelerate quickly because it's a rough crossing. Thus, I had stopped, and was just starting to go...


Monkey: BAAAAAAaaaaaa. 

Me: Wha...??? What is THAT about??

Monkey (laughing hysterically): BAAAAAA. I'M A SHEEEEEEEP...  THAT JUST GOT RUN OVER BY THE CAR. BAAAAAA.


Caught off guard, I actually snort laughed. 


The BEST part??


She relayed this story to her father, and ALMOST had him convinced that she truly DID see a sheep on the side of the railroad tracks on our way to school. And, that I ALMOST hit it.

Nice.
