Heard over dinner last night …

Ellie: Why are there screws in chairs?
Daddy: They hold the chairs together.
Ellie: So the squirrels won’t eat them?
Daddy: Squirrels? What squirrels?
Ellie: The squirrels that eat the chairs.
Daddy: No. There are no squirrels. They’re screws. They’re two different things.
Ellie (clearly losing her patience): Daddy. I SAID why are there SCREWS in the CHAIRS.
Daddy: To hold the chairs together.
Ellie: So the squirrels won’t eat them.
Daddy: What squirrels? Ellie, I don’t know what —
Ellie (with a little, condescending laugh): It’s okay, Daddy. It’s a tough question.

Talk to me!
