Eli: Mom, I feel like I’m almost ready to have kids.
Me: What does it mean to be ready to have kids?
Eli: Well, I mean I want to be responsible and learn how to do a lot of jobs.
Me: Awesome, buddy. I’m glad you want to be responsible.
Eli: Can you teach me how to make scrambled eggs?
Eli: Tomorrow morning?
