A Conversation With Charlie (Age 4)

HIM: Dad, Kate and I are here to take the place of other people.
ME: What? What do you...huh?
HIM: You know how Grandpa Moe died? And his last name was Moe?
ME: Yeah?
HIM: My last name is Moe now. And Kate's last name is Moe. We're here to replace people who have died.
ME: Oh.
(long silence)
HIM: DINOSAUR!

"And his last name was Moe?.....My last name is Moe."
