Voice of doom

Hooper: Daddy, I’ve been practicing my roar and it’s really loud now. Wanna hear?

Me: Sure!


Me: That’s pretty loud!

Hooper: Thanks!

Me: Lemme ask you a question. Why would you want to use a roar like that?

Hooper (after thinking a second): If somebody was picking on me.

Me: If somebody was picking on you?

Hooper: Yeah. Like today, [Victoria’s friend A] and [Victoria’s friend B] were calling me a scaredy-cat.

Me: What are you scared of?

Hooper: Nothing.

Me: So why were they calling you a scaredy-cat?

Hooper: Because they could.

Me: So what did you do?

Hooper: I roared!

Me: And what happened?

Hooper: They ran off into the girls’ bathroom. That’s where they were when you got there.

Me: Well, OK, then.

Hooper: But I still have to practice. You never know when you’ll need a roar.
