While watching yesterday ( I can't remember which of the movies), we came upon a scene where Frodo is delirious and lashing out at his friend, Sam.
Sam says, "Mr. Frodo. It's me. Your Sam."
My son has a best friend, also named Sam, which prompted my husband to say, "Everyone needs a Sam," meaning everyone needs a loyal friend.
My boy could have said anything, but true to form he had to sneak in a one-liner:
"Yes," he says, "Sam's are good for your colon."
So, I guess, by my son's pretzel logic, friends help you poop.
In ten years of being his mom, I have yet to figure my son out. I'm open for suggestions.
