I get out of my car and walk down the driveway to the mailbox. As I'm glancing through the usual pile of bills & junk there, I hear the door open behind me and Frank comes out talking. It's his usual random word salad about video games until he sees me at the box.

Frank: "Those 2 video games I ordered from Amazon came in today's mail. I've been inside playing them."

Dr. Grumpy: "That's good... They were in today's mail?"

Frank: "Yeah, I checked when I get home. I've been waiting for them."

Dr. Grumpy: "Then why didn't you bring in the rest of the mail when you did that?"

Frank: "It wasn't addressed to me."

"Word salad about video games" from your son.

I'm glad to know I'm not the only one who half tunes out the nonstop running play-by-play.

There are days when, if I have to hear ONE MORE TIME about crafting tables, Endermans, and zombies, I might lose it!

...I've been known to do that, actually, but usually only if I'm on my way out (like, already locked the door and heading to my car), and the rest of the family isn't home. I take my mail, and leave the rest.

Sounds age-appropriate to me, unfortunately.

A few years ago my son (age 6 ish?) and I were returning home. I asked him to check the mail. He opened the box, said yes there was mail, closed it and walked in the house.

Children are very literal. I now tell him to bring in any mail in the box.
