And They Wonder Why I Forget To Get Dressed Sometimes

Mama (hearing a loud thump from the other room): "Reuben, are you okay?"

Reuben (from said other room): "What?"

Mama: "Are you okay?"

Reuben: "What?"

Mama: "Are you okay?"

Reuben: "WHAT?"

Mama: "Are you okay?"

Reuben: "What 'okay'?"

Mama: "Are you okay?"

Reuben: "What?"

Mama: "How are you?"

Reuben: "I doing good."

Mama: "Okay!"

He wanders into the room and sits down beside me.
Reuben: "Mama, why you say 'Okay'?"

Mama: "I just wanted to make sure you were alright. I thought I heard you fall down. Did you fall down?"

Reuben: "Oh!" (He chuckles to himself): "No." He gives a big sigh.
"I just fell down."
