In an ever-changing world, it’s nice to know a few things stay the same. One such thing is that you just never know what’s going to come out of a child’s mouth. I recently got a hilarious email from a friend that had examples of reportedly true comments from youngsters. I have no idea if they really did occur since they were found on the Internet, but after hearing from co-workers with young children, I bet they’re true. Read on for a chuckle!
• Steven, age 3, hugged and kissed his mom good night. “I love you so much that when you die I’m going to bury you outside my bedroom window.”
• Brittany, age 4, had an ear ache and wanted a pain killer. She tried in vain to take the lid off the bottle. Her mom explained that it was a child-proof cap and she’d have to open it for her. Eyes wide with wonder, the little girl asked, “How does it know it’s me?”
• DJ, age 4, stepped onto the bathroom scale and asked, “How much do I cost?”
• James, age 4, was listening to a Bible study. His dad read, “The man named Lot was warned to take his wife and flee out of the city, but his wife looked back and was turned to salt.” Concerned, James asked, “What happened to the flea?”
• Tammy, age 4, was with her mother when they met an elderly, rather wrinkled woman her mom knew. Tammy looked at her for a while and then asked, “Why doesn’t your skin fit your face?”
• Clinton, age 5, was in his bedroom looking worried when his mom asked what was troubling him. He replied, “I don’t know what’ll happen with this bed when I get married. How will my wife fit in it?”
• One Sunday, the minister began his sermon. “Dear Lord, the minister began with arms extended toward heaven and his upturned face rapturous,”Without you, we are but dust …” The minister would have continued, but at that moment a little girl who was listening carefully leaned over to her mother and asked in her loud, 4-year-old voice, “Mom, what is butt dust?”
