When I got back in the car, Alice was bawling in the back seat.
Me: What's wrong?
Jane: Henry told Alice you were going to jump the car.
Me: I did! We're all fixed.
Jane: No, he said you were going to, like, actually jump over it.
Me: Oh, buddy.
Henry: Sorry, Dad. I thought it was funny.
Alice continues to wail. Poor thing has been fighting a cold and has been cranky all day.
Me: Alice, I wasn't jumping over the car. I was taking some of the electricity from Jason's car and jumping it to our car. It's an expression.
She tries to be big, but she can't help crying.
I take off my seat belt.
Me: Well, there's just one thing to do.
Me: All better, Alice?
She wipes her eyes.
Alice: Can you do it again?
