Rooby: Do you think there are any edgetarians on this bus?
Me: Do you mean vegetarians?
Rooby: No, edgetarians.
Me: What is an “edgetarian”?
Rooby: That’s someone who doesn’t eat meat.
Me: That’s a vegetarian.
Rooby: Oh. Do you think there are any vegetarians on this bus?
Me: Quite possibly, yes.
Rooby: And I’m a vegetarian.
Me: Oh, you don’t eat meat?
Rooby: No. It’s too spicy for me!
Me: But you know what is made of meat? Hot dogs.
Me: And hamburgers. And also chicken noodle soup.
Rooby: What?? [theatrical scowling]
Me: But we could make vegetarian versions of all those things, if you’d like.
Rooby: Mom, you’re cracking me up.
