Me: What are you doing?
Max: Collecting eggs.
Me: From where???
Me: You still have Easter eggs?
Max: Oh yeah! I haven't eaten hardly any of mine.
Me: *mumbles* Good thing I didn't know that. What are you doing with those eggs?
Max: Well...can you do me a favor tonight? I have 20 eggs. *fiddles* Make that 30 eggs. Can you open them all and put the candy into my lunch box?
Me: 30 Easter Eggs worth of candy?! You want me to put all that junk into your lunch?!! I don't think that's a good idea. That's not very healthy.
Max: Oh come on Mom! I won't eat it all tomorrow. I just want it in my lunch box. Just in case.
Just in case of what, I wonder. Candy shortage? I opened all the eggs and only put about 5 eggs worth into his lunch. Today, after school, I asked if he enjoyed the candy.
Max: Mom! You only put in a little bit! But I found the rest in a paper bag on the table and dumped it all into my lunch box myself this morning.
Me: *facepalm* I sure hope you didn't eat all that!
Max: Of course not! I have lots left for tomorrow.
Oh boy. That boy is something else.
