Kid’s say the darndest things
Children say the funniest things — some are comprehensible; some are not.
Three kindergarten children at the South Lake Tahoe Recreation Center took a break from their afternoon snack of sliced apples and cheese to answer some important questions.
Austin Williams puts clear gel in his hair and wants to be a “newspaper guy.” Jasmine Munn wants to be a teacher and a nurse. Robert Hook doesn’t like cheese and wants to be a policeman.
The threesome was more than happy to chat. Giggles became infectious when Robert hid under a wooden bench.
n What is the most important thing in life?
AW: To be safe. If you’re not safe you’ll get hurt like if you’re blind you won’t see and you’ll get run over by a car.
JM: It’s to care for everybody.
RH: Don’t cut down trees. That’s a really, really, really bad thing.
n How can you tell if a boy or girl likes you?
AW: Because we look cute. She asks me to marry me.
JM: They would smile and ask me to have a date at a restaurant. I would order pizza.
RH: I don’t know.
n How do you know when you’ve gone too far?
AW: Because you can’t see your house anymore.
JM: If you had too much toys.
RH: When my parents say, “Stop it.”
n What is the worst thing you could do to a person?
AW: Give them a bruise on the nose because that’s where the boogers come out.
JM: Slam them into a tree.
RH: Punch them. Yeah, yeah. Punch them.
n How do you make a person happy?
AW: Be nice to them. Make them a cookout and go to a baseball thing together and play basketball.
JM: Give them a card.
RH: Play cards with them.
n If you could have any pet, what would it be?
AW: I want a pig for dinner tomorrow and a cow. That’s the funniest thing I ever said.
JM: A white bunny because they’re furry. I like furry animals.
RH: A dinosaur. I mean a vampire. I mean, not a vampire, a bat because I could fly with it.
The question-and-answer session was interrupted when Jasmine had to leave and Robert disappeared into another room. Austin remained with a smile as big and bright as a casino at night. He started doing jumping jacks and talked about why answering questions is a good thing.
“It’s good and it’s fun because you get more exercising so you can do those things at your picnics at lunchtime,” he said.
