My Son Starting Telling Me Secrets

Yesterday he motioned for me to lean down close to his mouth. He whispered something into my ear. Something about a dragon. He's really into dragons this week.

"Oh my God," I said. "That's crazy. I can't believe it. I'll be sure to keep that a secret."

He laughed.

I leaned down and told him a secret. "I'm actually a dragon," I whispered. "But I know how to transform my dragon body into the body of a middle-aged dad from Pennsylvania. It's a special power I have."

He looked at me.

"Roooooooar," I said.

"That's a dinosaur," he said.

"Grrrrrrrr," I said.

Sometimes I get confused. It's been years since I transformed myself from a dragon into a dad and I don't know how to be a dragon anymore.
