Kids say the darndest things...

I was at a lovely park in Lewis Center the other day when it was 60 degrees outside (in February - how?!) and a little boy about eight years old was playing near me. We started talking about his light-up sneakers, and he informed me that they were Star Wars shoes. He told me that he likes Star Wars a lot, and Chewbacca has a gun and a lightsaber, and ... (insert huge spoiler that I don't know about because I haven't seen the movie so I won't repeat it here). I told him that I haven't seen the new Star Wars movie yet. He said, "It's PG-14." Hee!

"Well, I could see it since I'm over 14," I told him. He looked at me quizzically... "You're over 14?"

I nodded, feeling pretty awesome that I could be mistaken for a middle schooler. He said "So is my grandma!" Awesome. That sudden whoosh you heard was the air being let out of my balloon.
