Out of the Mouth of Lucy

As we were making bagels and Lucy was pouring in the honey, I asked:  "Where does honey come from?"  Lucy didn't quite reply and so I said, "What animals make honey?"

Lucy said, "Rats."

Later on in the day Lucy was asking for milk.  I told her "not right now."  She then said to me, "If you don't get me milk, I won't play with you!"  "Okay!" I replied.  (I was tired of playing dolls . . .)  She then told me that she was just teasing.  Darn it.  :)

okay, rats? that's disgusting. would she eat it if it really came from rats?

totally disgusting, you're right. i don't know if she'd eat it or not - probably because she's three and maybe just "doesn't know better." ya know, just accepts the fact that she lives in a world where rats make honey and we eat it.

i'm glad we really don't live in that world.
