Conversations with Little People: Fish Sticks

Super Tucker

What did you buy, Dada?

I can’t tell you.

Is it a surprise for me?


Is it for me for my birthday!?


What is it?

I can’t tell you, Tucker, or it wouldn’t be a surprise any more.

Is it a new car?

A new car?! I told you, I can’t tell you what it is. But do you really think I’d buy you your own car for your birthday?

No… but now I think I know what it is.

You do, huh?

Yes. It’s fish sticks.


Yes. IS it fish sticks?

No. No, it is not fish sticks.

But I’m getting closer, right?

Well… yes… I suppose fish sticks is closer than a new car.

Okay. Hmm… not fish sticks… is it… a TREE?

A… a tree? No, I did not get you a tree.

Is it… a sign?

A sign? What? Are… are you just naming things you see outside the window right now?


Well, it’s nothing you can see out the window.

I still think maybe it’s fish sticks.


  • As long as the fish sticks also come with custard.


    • Doctor recommended!

  • Did he see fish sticks out the window? Why were fish sticks out the window? So many many many thoughts!


    • I have NO idea where it came from. I believe he’s only had fish sticks two times in his life.

      He does have a habit of turning to whatever is around the room or outside the window when looking for something to say on the spot though. Usually this comes through improvised song lyrics (♫ If you’re happy and you know it… um… look at the trucks! ♫).
