The Jennifer Lewis of Mothers

Me: Cats are people spirits trapped in animal bodies.
The Kid: *Brow raise*
Me: Really. Yesterday I watched a cat bothering a bird in the tree in the backyard. I tapped the window ONCE, it looked straight at me. I pointed for it to leave and it did. It looked disgusted with me but it left.
The Kid: Ok

—-Later watching black-ish—-
The Kid: I would love it if Jennifer Lewis was my mom.
Me: She’s bipolar.
The Kid: *Just blinks at me with a carefully blank expression*
Me: *Aghast* Are you KIDDING ME?
The Kid: I didn’t SAY anything.
Me: *Pointing at the door* Even the cat knew what this meant.
