Children are so smart nowadays.
Last night I was walking home from the train and was half eavesdropping on the conversation behind me.
Mom: Okay. Okay. One, stop walking into me and two, calm down! [This sounds like Alex yelling at me!]
Boy: Mom, Mom! If acid burns through things, what container do they keep it in? Can it burn through metal and glass? How do they keep it?
Mom: [utters something indiscernible]
Boy: Mom! Where does the water in our sinks and bathtubs come from?
Mom: The sewer system.
Whatever happened to, why is the sky blue? At least I know the answer to that one. But if this teaches you anything, it's to never stop asking questions. That's how you get so smart.
