6 year old wisdom
Each day the 6 year old son of my boss comes to the office after school and we discuss 'Storm Chasers'.In fact 'Storm Chasers' has become our own little shared joke, he loves nothing better than to amaze me with his endless knowledge of the show. And I love to pose challenging questions to test his knowledge, which he gleefully answers or neatly sidesteps with a giggle.But yesterday we were discussing his new toy shovel, rake and hoe set. I said he would need to use them in the garden to help his mom and he replied "but tonight we need to furgalize"!I said "furgalize"?"Yes we need to furgalize"It took a moment, but then I realised..."Fertilize, not furgalize"! which of course brought on a big shared fit of giggles.His mom later told me another classic. The other day they were discussing his little sisters Barbie car, which is hard to control. He said that it was because it has no "contraction". What he actually mean't is it has no "traction". It's never a dull chat with a 6 year old.
