about blue moss.
You already know that Jayce has a knack for talking- especially in the car. What you don't know is that Baylie is a driver- YIKES! so our conversations in the car lately have been "Baylie's trying to kill me!"- repeated over and over and over! Poor kid.
But today for a few minutes Jayce and I had the car to ourselves long enough to run to the grocery store and this is when I learned everything I will ever need to know about blue moss.
"Mom, have you ever tried to touch blue moss?"
Nope- I have never heard of blue moss.
(This was a trick question, I realized too late. I will now become very educated about blue moss)
"Blue moss is very dangerous. You should never touch it OR touch anything that has touched it. Do you know why? Because blue moss causes hallucinations in most people and animals. You have to be really careful mom, because even if that blue car came from blue moss and you touched the car you could begin hallucinating. I am never touching a blue car again."
I squeeze in a quick- Jayce, do you even know what hallucination means?
"What do you think, mom?"
Another trick- I don't want to fail, but seriously, I cant be having this conversation with a 6 year old-
I say- "I'm asking you, buddy. What do you think it means?"
"How can I explain this?" he says. "Its like having an imagination, only more frightening because when you are imagining you control you mind but when you hallucinate your not in control and then weird things can happen, like you might think that you are talking to a zebra, and then the zebra really talk's back to you and it could really freak you out. "
"This is what blue moss does to people."
How do you know this? I ask-
(Have I missed something? Was there like a blue moss report on the news?)
"Well, I saw it on TV- and it was really interesting- but did you know about the yellow moss? It just makes you crazy- like if you are nice it usually makes you mean....."
When he takes a breath I ask if there are other mosses that I need to know about-
He says "We could consult Phineas and Ferb- that's who told me about the blue and yellow moss. Well actually not them but their grandma because they were doing an experiment and they didn't know about the blue moss.........................."
Wow. Time to turn the TV off!
