Grandfather: Oh, this rice is so good, Logan. Yum, yuck, yuck.  Sorry, Logan. But hey, look. Your mom’s in the other room. Let’s forget the rice for a minute. One bite of this chocolate milkshake won’t hurt. Here. Take a small bite, no a BIG bite . . . yeah!

Daughter: How does my child like the rice?

Grandfather: Well. . . . Logan. Look. You have chocolate all over your face.  Let me clean up your face before your mom comes in here.

Daughter: Dad. Is he not eating? Do I need to come in there?

Grandfather: No, no, no. We’re fine. Thanks. Logan and I are just talking about politics, the stock market. You know, the economic turmoil in the world. Just light stuff like that.

Daughter: Oh, yeah, that’s all he needs. I . . . I’m coming in there.

Grandfather: No, no, no. No need. Oh . . .

Daughter: Dad! What have you been giving him?

Grandfather: We’ve just been sharing some of this chocolate rice, uh, milkshake!

Daughter: You know it doesn’t come in flavors, right? It just comes in rice. Uh, look. Wash his face. We have to go to the store. Get him cleaned up.

Grandfather: Okay. Logan. I guess I’ll have to finish the milkshake myself.
