Conversations with a preschooler

In the car, after dinner the other night. Lucas was holding a little rubber POS thing that he got in one of those plastic containers from a vending machine for .25 cents.

Me: "Lucas don't put that in your mouth."

Lucas: "Why not?"

Me: "Because it's not edible."

Jason: "Lucas do you know what "edible" means?"

Lucas: "Yes, It means you can eat it."

Hot damn, that kid has brains.  And yes, I'm totally taking credit for his genius.
