On the way to the gym...
Daughter: “Ugh. It's way early. I'll be asleep by the time we get there.”
Me: “You could have stayed in bed.”
Daughter: “No, I want to do this. Wait....ewww. What's that smell?”
Me: “What smell? Oh, yuck. [rolling down window] It must be skunk.”
Daughter: “That's just nasty.”
A few minutes later....
Daughter: “Oh man.....gross, another skunk. Can't you smell that? [rolling down window]
Me: “Well, we're almost there.”
Daughter: “What is it with skunks and the early morning? This just stinks.”
Me: “So you're saying 5:00 AM smells like skunk butt?”
Daughter: [Giggles] “Yeah, but is it actually the skunk's butt?” I mean, they have a gland or something that makes the smell, right?”
Me: “It's a gland, but I think it's in the butt area. Skunk-butt area.”
Daughter: “I can't believe we're talking about skunk-butt at 5:00 AM.”
