Kids Say the Darnedest Church

Today at work the conversation turned to the topic of children's embarrassing comments. One of my colleagues related the following church incident:

It was time for "children's church," before the sermon, and the pastor was complimenting the dress of my friend's small daughter: "That sure is pretty."

"I know," replied the tot. "But it's a real bitch to iron."

How wonderful! You can't beat kids for honesty.

I took my daughter to a performance of the Nutcracker when she was 9 or 10. After noticing that both principal dancers were female, she asked, in a piercing, little-girl voice, "Mommy! Are they LESBIANS?"

That got the little old ladies turning round! I haven't stopped laughing yet.
