Sebastian is my seven-year old and he says some of the funniest things–we have no idea where he gets his material since his mother and I are rather boring, serious people. This one comes from a while ago, shortly after Sebastian learned to read….
According to my wife, there are many rather innocuous words that are verboten in our house: kill, shut (particularly when followed by “up”), darn, shucks, and pretty any word that refers to the human body. Apparently, so is the word “Dead”.
Sebastian: “What are we having for dinner?”
Sebastian: “Is the salmon dead?”
My wife: “Don’t say ‘dead’!”
Sebastian (who after quite a struggle, is finally a reader); “Is it ‘dee-uh’ and ends with a ‘D’?”
