There’s a routine by a comedian whose name I can’t recall that I always liked. In it, the comic talks about his son and how little kids are honest to a fault. The boy walks up to heavyset woman wearing a Guess? shirt and says, “I don’t know. 280? 285?” And so on.
I was reminded of that routine by today’s edition of Kids Say The Cutest Things:
On the one hand, we want our children to be honest. On the other hand, there are times when being honest is not a good idea. When you receive a birthday present you don’t like, you don’t say, “Gee, this sucks.” You say, “Thank you for the gift.”
Or if you see a person who is particularly unattractive, it probably isn’t such a great idea to refer to them as a K-9. I’m just saying.
Get more brutal honesty from people no taller than your kness right here. You can also submit your own trenchant toddler tidbits.
