Ya' gotta be quick

Me: washing dishes. Levi: just in from a basketball game with Eric.

Levi: Mom, did you ever like anyone before Dad?

Me: Uhhh....ummm...there was someone I thought was interesting, but I never liked anyone like I do Daddy.

Levi: Mom?

Me: (anticipating another momentous question) yes?

Levi: Did you know that in the final, like, 2 minutes I made 4 three-point shots? No, seriously, I did. So we got to within about 12, but then it was over.

Me: That's great.
