After a luau-themed school picnic, my seven-year-old came home with several different colors of plastic leis. When her two-year-old “Queen of Destruction” sister grabbed a hold of one, she became very nervous. Trying to pull it away would almost ensure a torn lei and asking nicely for its safe return having proved fruitless, she instructed her little sister, “Don’t break or tear it.”
The younger, bent on the mess potential all this frilly plastic could create, but still wanting to be obedient to her big sister, responded,
“Okay. Then I will cut it!”
Such a wise little imp you’re raising!
Yes, I’m … uh… very proud.
What a very clever girl!
Well, it never said that. He is literal.
Is this how lawyers are when they are little?
I was wondering that too.
