Thing Kids Say

I have started to write down some of the funny things kids say. Working in a field that involves lots of kids, I hear quite a few quotable comments.

The other day, I was juggling fire for a group of kids. As I was preparing to start juggling, I overheard two 7-8 year-old girls talking:

Girl 1: “What if he messes up?”
Girl 2: “He won’t mess up, he’s a nermessional.”

A few months ago, I asked a young boy if he could guess my age….

Me: “How old do you think I am?”
Boy: “I don’t know…”
Me: “I’m 30 years old.”
Boy: “Oh, you more like 29 to me.”

You can’t make this stuff up. What’s your favorite kid-quote?
