Boston: Conversation with a 5 year old

I am staying at my friend Lisa’s house in Boston and have been hanging out with her kids this am. When I told the younger one I needed to go do some work, the following dialogue ensued:

Fred: Where are you going?
Me: I have to go do some work.
Fred: But I want to play with you.
Me: We can play later, after you come back from school. We can make a cake, remember?
Fred: Why do you need to go to work?
Me: I need to work to make money.
Fred: Oh, we need money to buy things to make a cake.
Me: That’s right.
Fred: Okay, see you later

Susan sez: I am in love!!!!
