Buddy, age 8: "Mom, did you know I'm reading that Wimpy Kid book?"
Me: "No, I didn't know that. Do you like it? Where did you get it?"
Buddy: "At the library. It's great. (pause) Did you know it's inappropriate?"
Me: "Um, I wondered about that. What do you think is inappropriate?"
Buddy: "Well they leave this cheese in the basketball court. And then one of them gets the cheese touch because it's been sitting there for years and years and years. And he gets naked."
Me: "Oh? When does he get naked?"
Buddy: "I don't know yet I haven't got to that part."
Me: "Oh. Are there any words in there you don't know?"
Buddy: "Yeah but it's OK I just scroll past them."
