Boys Are Hilarious

Conner and Alex have just gone to bed. I'm sitting in the living room  just down the hall. Everything is very quiet and then I hear the following:

Conner: [Drawn out] Saaay it.
Alex: Say What?
Conner: [Louder] Saaay it!
Alex: Say What!?
Conner: [Accusingly] YOU JUST FARTED!

Boys are hilarious.
