Them teeth be made of gold.

After losing his tooth right before Christmas, Benson has been counting the days until he can write his name on the tooth at school.  Now that he’s performed this sacred ritual, he is ready to put the tooth under his pillow for the tooth fairy.  (I suppose he was keeping it for proof in case anyone wanted to see the actual tooth?)

B: “Tomorrow’s tonight, I’m going to sleep in my own bed all night so I can put my tooth under my bed for the tooth fairy.  Then, she will give me MONEY.”

Me: “Interesting.  How much money will she be giving you?”

B: “Just one.”

Me: “Just one dollar?”

B: “No.  Just one.  You know, the green paper one.  That’s my favourite one.”

Me: “Guess who’s coming over today.”

B: “Devon!”

Me: “Yep!”

B: “And who else is coming to my house today?”

Me: “Aimee!”

B: “Oh…but Aimee’s just like a baby, so…but she can be my friend, because she’s already my friend.  But who else of my friends that’s 4 years old is coming?”

Me: “Well….Jolene!”

B: “Okay.  But who else?”

Me: “That’s it buddy.  But isn’t that going to be great?”

B: “But..what about Dave? Because we need to have Dave.”

“Houses don’t belong in outer space. Because people live in them. I wish I was a alien, so I could have a spaceship and explore earth. And how could the aliens go in earth? Because some do, but when you see something in the air like spaceships or helicopters, they are flying!”

This is the very first thing he said when he woke up at 630.
