background: bernie and i have both been sick this week.
setting: driving the boys to drop them off at daycare yesterday.
earlier that morning: ben informed his grandma that he was "buzz" today when she went in to get him from his crib.
benny: hey eby'body, where's daddy?
me: he's at home sleeping, honey. he's sick.
me, jokingly: you were supposed to protect us from the cooties, "buzz."
benny: (quiet for a bit, then)...i was s'posed to pwotect you fum duh booties, mommy?
i, personally, enjoy trying to visualize the image he had in his head those few seconds before asking this clarifying question.
