A thought before bedtime…

“Mommy, why do we have to watch out for fall germs?”

“Ummm. Fall germs? What are those?” (mommy plays innocent – instead of stupid)

“The germs that come in the fall.”

“Well, sweetie, there are all types of germs, but they aren’t for just one season. Where did you hear of fall germs?”

“At school*, we looked at pictures of germs. There is one shaped like a hammer. It (bonking himself on head) gives you a headache.”

Wouldn’t life be so much easier if germs were shaped in a way that related them to the illness they caused?

*just want to clarify that Sam goes to a wonderful school, and his take was his preschooler translation!
