Cassandra and I were talking about something and Jane chimed in, halfway through.

“What are you guys talking about?”
“We’re trying to decide where to leave you after school.”, I said.

It was apparently too early in the morning for joking because she got very sad and started to pout a little, “You can’t just LEAVE me somewhere!”

Cassandra said, “Oh honey, Daddy was just kidding.”

So I hugged my daughter tight and said, “Of course I was kidding honey. We would never just leave you somewhere. We would sell you first.”
