Lanche (Snack)

conversations with hank


Me: (reading)

Hank: Mama, I feel a little hungry in my belly.

Me: Well, it is time for lanche (afternoon snack).

Hank: I would like a little something, please.

Me: Do you have anything in particular in mind?

Hank: Hum (pause) Can I have a torrada (toast) with Pennsylvania?

Me: (roaring with laughter)

Hank: (facepalm) I have no idea how I said that! What was I thinking? I don’t even know how that happened!

Me: (chuckling) Made perfect sense to me! You want a toast with Philadelphia Cream Cheese.

Hank: Why would I say Pennsylvania?

Me: Because…

Hank: Philadelphia is in Pennsylvania?

Me: Correct. (walking into the kitchen) Ten points to Gryffindor!

Hank: Is Gryffindor in Pennsylvania, too?

Me: (returning to riots of laughter)
