A Perfectly Normal Conversation (I think)


The following conversation occurred during our morning commute to school. Try to keep up  ...

Timo: Do you think scorpions and shrimp taste the same because they look like they would taste the same.

Me: What in the world made you think of that?

Timo: Yesterday we read in our Scholastic News that there are places in the world where people eat scorpions. Oh, and also tarantulas and cockroaches.

Me: Okay. This is making me gag. Next topic.

Two seconds later ...

Timo: Yesterday during religion the teacher asked the class who Mary was, and Camilla raised her hand and said that Mary was the "womb girl".

He starts laughing like crazy.

From eating bugs to Mary and her womb. Totally logical progression of thought, don't you think?

Queste sono le cose importanti della scuola che si ricorderanno nella vita!!!
Certamente non i nomi dei monti, dei fiumi, delle città o le date della storia...ah! ah!
Bellissimo.
