Mother: Did you see your aunt mailed you a present?
Four-year-old boy: No…
Mother: Yes. You can have it when you get home.
Four-year-old boy: Oh. Did she get one for Dustin*, too?
Mother: Yes, and it’s something I think you’ll like, too. It’s a book about sharks and sea monsters.
Four-year-old boy: Oh, Mom, there’s no such things as sea monsters, except back maybe a million years ago when people thought there were.
Mother: Well, sharks are kind of like sea monsters.
Four-year-old boy: No, they’re not! –F train Overheard by: Duncan Pflaster
