Vegetarian.

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.

Rooby: Oh.

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.
