But that’s Simon’s new verbal tic.

As in, “Simon, how’s the game going?”

“Well, I hate tell you this, but Chelsea just scored.”

Not that it always makes sense in context. There’s also,

“Simon, what would you like for dinner?”

“Well, I hate to tell you this, but I do not want a corn dog.”

But then he gets it so right that it’s unnerving. Like this exchange last night:

“Simon, what should we get Baron for his birthday.”

“A superhero. Baron is really into superheroes and blasters (guns).”

“That’s what I thought. What about Braylon? What’s he into?”

“Um, the same I think.”

“And you? If someone were shopping for you, what would I tell them you are into?”

“Well, Mommy, I hate to tell you this, but I’m into girls.”

I’ll file that one away. And for the record, the girls are kind of into him, too.
