Matthew: "Mom, do you love Tink, too?"
Me (in hindsight, wishing I'd just said yes): "Hmm. I'm not sure that I'd say that I love her. I like Tinkerbell, I think, from watching Peter Pan, but no, I wouldn't say I love her."
Matthew: "Well, you have seen her on Peter Pan, and you have to admit that she's pretty sweet."
Me: "Yeah, I think so."
Matthew: "Mom, do you love watching movies with me?"
Me: "Sometimes...depends on the movie."
Matthew: "Do you love watching some movies with me then?"
Matthew: "Did you love watching Peter Pan with me?"
Me: "Yes, that's a great story. I love that movie."
Matthew: "So you do love watching some movies. Does that mean that you love some of the characters in the movies that you love?"
Me (hesitantly, sensing a trap coming and wishing it was bedtime already): "Yeees, I guess so."
Matthew: "So if you love watching some movies, like Peter Pan, you must have loved some of the characters in Peter Pan. Like Tinkerbell."
Matthew (smiling in my rear view mirror): "Mom. Do you love Tinkerbell?"
Me (with a sigh): "Yes, Matthew, I love Tinkerbell."
Sheesh. That kid's gotta work as a lawyer some day.
