My big brother sent me a text the other day, regarding an exchange he had with my 5 year old niece. She is the honeycrisp apple of my eye. I thought I'd share this little gem:
Anoushka: how high can an eagle fly dad?
Me: about a mile I guess.
Anoushka: if we took all the feet off the dead people on earth, and stacked them up, would that be a mile?
Me:......sure, sounds about right... Bloody weirdo.
The next day, he sent this follow up:
Anoushka's mom: Why would you take the feet off Anoushka? They would stack better with the feet on.
In fairness, my sister-in-law is a doctor. So maybe that was just her professional opinion, you know, since she's an anatomy expert. But still, I told him, he'd better sleep with one eye open.
