KIDS SAY THE DARNDEST THINGS
I was riding the subway today and a six year old girl and her three year old brother were sitting across from me in the car. The girl was showing her parents how well she could read.
“Do not lean on doors”
After patting her on the head a few times and applauding, the parents turned away to go back to their adult conversation.
Annoyed, the girl decided her brother would serve as the new audience. She decided to read him an advertisement that was posted along the top edge of the car.
The ad read: You may qualify for half-fare Metrocards if you can answer yes to any of these questions.
She read aloud to her brother:
You may candy for helper microwave if you can animals yes to all of the keepers.
Entralled her brother asked: “what does that mean?”
“It means you have to be quiet on the subway all the time or we can’t get candy.”
