The Boy does not drool when he's relaxed. However, he obsessively thinks he's about to drool, and will twitch and slurp the imaginary saliva back into his mouth. I think it's cute...I can always tell when he's really enjoying one of my massages because, all of a sudden..."schllllluuuup!"
Last night he did the slurp as he was falling asleep, and the following conversation occurred:
Me: I'm gonna buy you a PVC pillowcase that is impervious to drool. [Thinks a moment] But then if you did drool, the pillowcase would basically become a slip-n-slide and your head would skid across the pillow and slam into the wall.
Boy: [Gives me the stinkeye for a full minute and a half]
Me: Hey, man, that was funny. You are clearly not mentally developed enough to grasp my sophistimacated sense of humour. I am a comedic genius.
Boy: Yeah, just like Beethoven. [A reference to this awesome thing we'd read right before bed]
Me: [Highly undignified snortlaugh]
