kids mishear the funniest things

At lunch today, Toby out of the blue said, “Daddy, did you know that Opa is wrong?” I asked him what he meant – apparently out of the blue he’d remembered a book my dad had brought him last month, where someone tells someone else to spread the word. Due to my dad’s accent, Toby thought the line was “spread the wood”, and it took me a while to persuade him that it was word, not wood. Now Toby is very suspicious of what his grandfather has to say.

Also Toby was telling me about his mall trip this morning with Emma, during the course of which they had a break for a snack. Toby told me he had a blueberry muffin. I said, “Ah yes, the state muffin of Minnesota.” Toby said, indignantly, “No, it was blueberry. Not steak.”
