"Hey Mom, when you were a kid and you had dogs, did they have wooden dog toys to play with?"
She's under the impression that plastic had not been invented yet when I was a kid. Because the 1980's was a "really, really, really long time ago."
From Cora (when she saw me cleaning my ears with a q-tip):
"You clean your ears? You have eye boogers in your ears?"
"No honey, not eye boogers."
"Oh. You have dirt in your ears?"
"I guess, kind of."
"Oh. You been playin' in the sand box?"
"Nope, not lately."
"Oh. There ear boogers in your ears?"
Children are so charming.
We will forever call ear wax "ear boogers" in our house now, because that's just kinda funny.
