Julian memories

A conversation from a couple of summers ago, remembered, as we were walking to shul:

Julian: "Abba?"
Me: "Yes?"
Julian: "I really love octopus pie."
Me, confused: "Er...octopus pie?"
Julian: "Yeah. He's a transformer and he turns into a truck!"
Me, less confused, also relieved: "Julian, I think you mean 'Optimus Prime'."
Julian: "Oh! Yes! I really love Optimus Prime!"

Julian now has his first real Transformer. It's Bumblebee. I'm having a hard time convincing him that the name comes from the insect and the color scheme. Julian's a hard one to convince, sometimes.

I am relieved, to this day, that I'm not required to cook octopus pie to satisfy the weird palate of our little man.

Not that it's likely ever to be relevant to my life again, but octopus can be quite tasty if cooked properly.
