No More Cartoons

I am a bad dad. This morning, a conversation between Claire and I as she ate her blueberry waffles and waited for me to make the TV play something good.

Me: Claire. I have some bad news.

Claire: [Blank faced] What?

Me: There are no more cartoons.

Claire: What. Do. You. Mean?

Me: The people who make cartoons went out of business. There aren't going to be any more cartoons.

[Silence. Her eyes go cold. Her lip begins to quiver.]


Claire: I knew that.
