Here lately, the kids have been cracking – me – up with their conversations amongst themselves. Just last week, here’s how one went between the two boys.
JP: Will, what’s that stuff that we used in Art Camp?
W: The white stuff?
JP: Yeah, the stuff that looks like milk.
W: Oh, that’s paper meche.
JP: Well, it might look like milk, but don’t drink it. That’s what our teacher said. I wonder what would happen if you drank it. You’d probably die.
W: Yeah, your veins would fill up with it.
JP: What are veins?
W: They are those purple things on your arms. You have arteries, too. I bet it would fill those up too.
JP: Yeah, and then you’d die. Guess I better not drink it.
Boys. Who woulda thunk it?
