So if there was ever a clear example of why you need to be careful what you say to kids this has to be it. I was washing my truck with my nephew, and he turns to me and says:
Nephew: “This must be so traumatic for you!”
Me: “What? Why?”
Nephew: “Because you lost your other 12 brothers in the great squirt gun wars when they started using pressure washers.”
Me: “Your weird. How did you come up with that?”
Nephew: “You told me. Last summer. When we were pressure washing the deck.”
I know he did not think I used to have a bunch more brothers – but wow. I definitely need to watch what I tell him.
