Dramatis personae: Concerned Parent, Second Male Offspring
Scene: Three PM, meeting the schoolbus.
CP: Hi Sam! How was school?
CP: Ummm. . . Sam, how was school?
SMP: (angrily) Daddy, I am NEVER eating a HAMBURGER again.
CP: Uh, now Sam, why . . .
SMP: Daddy, they KILL COWS to make hamburgers.
CP: Wow. Well, yes, uh, Sam, that's true. . .
SMP: They KILL COWS.
CP: So Sam, does, uh, does that mean you're going to be a vegetarian? Because, I mean, that would be fine, if you actually, you know, ate vegetables. . .
SMP: Daddy, they kill a cow to make hamburgers. A SWEET, SWEET COW.
After which, really, there is nothing left to say.
