Me: “You got that one right.”

Nursing A Misunderstanding

| CT, USA | Parents & Guardians

(This happened when my brother is 4 years old, and my whole family is in the car. They have just driven past my mother’s old school where she learned to be a nurse.)

Mom: “Hey, look, guys. That’s where I went to nursing school!”

Brother: *gasp* “I GO TO NURSERY SCHOOL, TOO!”

Wait Until He Sees The Sea-Sheep

| Wales, UK | Siblings

(My mum is driving my brother and me through Wales. My brother and I are about three and seven respectively. We go past a field of sheep.)

Mum: “[Brother], what are those animals called?”

Brother: “LAND SEALS!”

(We still all laugh about it, 14 years later.)

Three-Dimensional Thinking

| Kamloops, BC, Canada | Children, Sons & Daughters

(My husband, 10-year-old son, and I are travelling through a very mountainous area of the British Columbia interior. My son has been gazing out the window at the towering landscape for some time.)

Son: You know, if they made a map of this place, they’d have to put it in a pop-up book.

Who Watches The Watch?

| CA, USA | Parents & Guardians

(My dad and I have just gotten into the car to go somewhere. Note that my dad typically wears his watch on his left wrist, and today is no exception.)

Dad: *glancing at his right wrist* “Now, I don’t have my watch, so…”

Me: *looking at his other wrist* “What do you mean?”

Dad: *looks at his watch, then knocks on his forehead* “Hello, anybody home?”

Plane-ly Mistaken

(My sister and I are in my car driving home from the mall. It’s early in the night but it’s still dark out. I see a light in the sky.)

Me: “Ohh! Look! First star of the night! I wish I may I wish I might—”

Sister: “That’s a plane…”

Me: “S***!”
