The scene in the car went something like this:
Me: I could while away the hours, conferrin' with the flowers, consultin' with the rain. With the thoughts I'd be thinkin' I could be another Lincoln--
Ethan, wearing ridiculous I ROCK shirt: IF I ONLY HAD A BRAAAAAIN!
So Ethan went to school giggling and I got a big hug and a kiss for my hammy rendition of the Scarecrow's song. And now I have coffee! It's gonna be a good day, I can tell.
