Secret Agent Sunscreen

I wrote this down at the time because I thought it was funny, but because I only wrote keywords and not the whole conversation, I can't remember how it came about. Let's just pick up where it gets odd, shall we?

Beaner [to me]: I'm going to call you sunscreen.

Me: Sunscreen?

Beaner: Yeah, Mommy Sunscreen.

Me: Is that my secret agent name? My code name?

Al, laughing: I could totally see that as your code name if you were like the president or the first lady or something.

Me [mouthing into pretend comm speaker]: Sunscreen is on the move. I repeat, Sunscreen is on the move. [Then, to the Beaner]: What's Daddy's secret agent name?

Beaner: TV. Daddy TV.

Al stops laughing.

Me: Seems appropriate.
