To Affinity and Beyonce

F:  I love you more than, eh, uh, what’s the word that means bigger than the sky?
D:  Infinity.
F:  Daddy, I love you more than you love me than affinity.
D (smiling):  I think that means you love me a lot, Fisher.  I love you a tons and a millions, too.
F:  I love you to affinity and beyond, say…
C:  No, Fisher.
D:  Thank you, Fisher.  That is a lot of love.

C:  I love you more than you love me than infinity, too, Daddy.
D:  Thanks, Cory.  That really is a lot of love!
F:  I love you to affinity and beyond, say…
C:  Fisher, no.  It is infinity and beyond, not infinity and Beyonce.

Thickheaded Daddy takes a minute to realize that he didn’t get what Fisher had been saying.

F:  What you say, Cory?
C (emphasizing the “d”):  It is infinity and beyond.  Beyonce sounds like beyond, but she’s a single lady.
D (laughing):  Yah, Fisher, Buzz says “to infinity and beyond,” not “to affinity and Beyonce”…
F:  But, Daddy…
D:  Yes?
F:  You say that nothing is bigger than affinity.  So…er, uh…what “beyond” means then?
D: “Beyond” means “further than” or “on the other side of.”
F (confused):  But, why he say “to affinity and beyond” then?
D:  Well, Buzz is just using a figure of speech to emphasize how far he’s going to go.

F:  But, Daddy!  What is beyond affinity?
D:  Well, nothing, Fisher.  Nothing can be bigger than infinity.  Buzz is just exaggerating, being silly.

Long pause.

F (with attitude):  Whatever.
