Overheard last week in our home:
Mama (noticing Alphonse watching American Idol on television): Hey, Alphonse, do you want to be an American Idol?
Alphonse nods “Yes”
Alex: But you can’t sing!
(Big deal! Alphonse doesn’t talk either. )
Alphonse nods “Yes” again.
Alex: Do you want to sing?
Alphonse shakes his head. “No. No.”
Alex: But you still want to be an American Idol?
Alphonse: “Yes. Yes.”
Alex rolls over in laughter. Alphonse beams.
