Kids Say the Darndest Things

It's time for "Kids Say the Darndest Things" again! This week I've got some good ones from some of the other kids. I thought I'd give Mr 5 yo the week off.

All three of these have to do with misinterpreting things that were read. The first one was from Ms 14 yo who was reading something a friend wrote. Her friend wrote that she had just visited the Naval Academy. "Eeewww," thought Ms 14 yo, "I wonder what kind of place that is?" She had an ah-ha moment when she realized it said Naval academy and not Navel academy!

The next one is also courtesy of Ms 14 yo. At Wal-Mart the other day she saw a rack of baked goods with a sign that read "OOPS...we over-baked". "Hmm," she thought, "these don't look over baked." Another ah-ha moment...

Then, not to make her sister feel bad, Ms 11 yo, on the way home from Wal-Mart saw a sign in a parking lot that said, "No Semi Parking". She vocalized her thoughts to us: "How do you semi-park?"

Maybe it was something we ate?
