"Yeah, but it's just water and a slice of bread," I told him. Turns out he was just wondering, a little concerned that detainees might be going hungry.
This is just one of the many amusing inquiries and comments my wife and I hear from our kids on a daily basis.
"When you're in college, where do you brush your teeth?" my boy asked. On another occasion he wondered, "Can a bee sting you through a napkin?" Good question. Not sure about that one and don't want to find out.
My daughter is more declarative than inquisitive. "You forgot to put dessert in my belly," she has said more than once. One of my favorites was, "Dad, my dress is wet from my pee." Once, while luxuriating in a bubble bath, she looked up, smiled and announced: "Ahhh, this is the life."
Indeed, this is the life. You little kids crack me up.
