It's The Yittle Fings, Part Thirty-Two

This one's just one, long, conversation...

Setting: Grocery store.
Specifically: The Dairy Aisle.

Ali: "Milk comes from Cows, Mommy!"

Me: "That's right!!"

(Basking in a moment of being impressed with her intellect about something I didn't remember teaching her.)

Ali: "So what animal does Apple Juice come from?"

(Okay, not as impressed)

Me: "Apple Juice actually comes from a FRUIT. Can you guess which fruit Apple Juice comes from?"

Ali: "Ummm......STRAWBERRIES!!!"

(All Impressedness is disappearing.)

Me: "No...think about it. What fruit does APPLE juice come from?"

Ali: "Umm....I'm thinking but I don't know."

(So much for intellect.)

Me: "APPLE juice. Listen carefully to what it's called: A-P-P-P-P-P-L-E juice. What fruit does it SOUND like it comes from?"

Ali: "I really just don't know. Will you just tell me???"

Me: "APPLE juice comes from APPLES!!! You hear it? APPLE juice --- APPLES. "

Ali: "OOOOH!!!"

Me: "So what fruit do you think GRAPE JUICE comes from?"

Ali: "Umm..... I don't know!"

Me: "We're going to have to work on your deductive reasoning."

Ali: "So what fruit does Coke come from?"

Me: "umm.....well....touche."

I have a feeling this is just one of the many times you will not be able to come up with a good answer :)

I totally know that feeling! Funny.

This made me laugh out loud!
I'm sure Ryan wishes that coke came from a fruit!

Stephanie said...

The kola nut is the fruit of the tree! So in a sense, it's a fruit!
