A nice walkabout.

Conan: Those look delicious.
Me: Those are cranes not chickens.
Conan: So?
Me: We eat chickens not cranes.
Conan: Do they taste bad?
Me: Well…I don’t know. I don’t know anyone who’s ever tried eating a crane.
Conan: Why not?
Me: I honestly don’t know. We just don’t eat them.
Conan: I bet some people do eat them but tell everyone they are disgusting so no one else will try them and they get all of them to themselves.
Me: I don’t think anyone’s doing that.
Conan: Then why don’t we eat them?
Me: I don’t know, Conan! We just don’t! We eat chicken! That’s just the way it is.
Conan: Fine but it just seems a bit arbitrary. Like, did some dude one day just stand in a field pointing at different birds and saying, “Yes, no, no, yes, definitely not, hell yes!”?
Me: Conan, I don’t know, man. These decisions were made way before you or I came along. I’m just trying to follow the rules.
Conan: The rules are bullshit. I say we fire up the grill and break some rules.
Me: No, we aren’t doing that.
Conan: You know I won’t let this go, right?
Me: Yeah, I know.
Conan: ….
Me: …..
Conan: …..
Me: Oh, you know what I just remembered?
Conan: What?
Me: I just remembered that McDonald’s just introduced a new menu item called Crane McNuggets.
Conan: Word?
Me: Um, yeah, totally.
Conan: Can we?
Me: Definitely, let’s go get some Crane McNuggets and eat them and then forget this whole thing ever happened.
Conan: Awesome. That’s amazing that you just remembered that. That’s pretty lucky.
Me: I know, right?
