This conversation took place in the car. Of course.

Mgazi: How old do I have to be to chew gum?

Me: Thirteen

Mgazi: Awwwww. Why thirteen?

Me: Because I said thirteen and it sounds like a nice number. Would you prefer fourteen?

Zaffy: I want fifteen!

Me: Twenty-one.

Mgazi: Why twenty-one?

Me: Because soda is bad for you. It's only good when mixed with alcohol.
