Conversations with Little People: Fish Sticks

Super Tucker

What did you buy, Dada?

I can’t tell you.

Is it a surprise for me?

Yes.

Is it for me for my birthday!?

Yes.

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.

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?

…Yes.

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

I still think maybe it’s fish sticks.

  • 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! ♫).
