Wait for it…

Zeke came in the house, filthy…

Me: “Zeke, what in the world is on your back?”
Zeke: “I don’t know. What does it look like?”
Me: “Um well, it looks like dirt and slime.”
Zeke: “Hmmm…dirt and slime… I really don’t know.”
Me: “Well, what have you been doing?”
Zeke: “Just being a turtle outside.”
Me: “How were you being a turtle?”
Zeke:”I put the lid from the outside trash can on my back and was crawling around.”
I pause, waiting for it…
Zeke: “Wait, maybe it is from the trash can lid. Sometimes the trash can has trash in it. I bet that is what happened.”
Me: “Yeah, I bet that is what happened.”
