my initial statement and question: "hmm, thanksgiving is this week. you want a turkey...so, what should we have for side dishes?"
Shawn's in-depth and highly complex answer: "jello"
And the rest of the conversation is as follows:
"alright, what type of jello?"
"I don't know, strawberry?"
"No, I don't mean what flavor, I mean what type--like lime with cream cheese and marshmallows, or cherry with fruit, or strawberry with whipped cream?"
"Why's it got to have extra stuff in it?"
"Because it's Thanksgiving."
"You know, just because it's Thanksgiving doesn't mean it has to be difficult."
"right, well, what else should we have for food?"
"we've already got potatoes...and a box of stuffing...and biscuits...and jello...."
"yeah, I know, but that's all easy stuff, what else should we have?"
"Ah yes, apple pie! That's kinda difficult...or not difficult but time consuming. Okay, now we're good."
"yes, I know, just because it's Thanksgiving doesn't mean it has to be difficult."
