The other morning, the boy was in the bathroom down the hall and the girl was keeping him company by sitting outside the closed door and chatting with him. All of a sudden, she yelled down the hall “MOM! Brother says that there are cheetahs in Asia!! He is WRONG!”
I think about this for a second, and then yell back down, “Kid, there’s no cheetahs in Asia. They’re only in Africa!”
He yells back (still in bathroom), “NO! There are cheetahs in Asia! They live in Iran!”
Still doubtful, I use my google-fu to learn that, well, shit, there ARE cheetahs in Iran.
“You’re right, actually! How did you know that?!” I asked him.
“‘Cause we’re learning about Asia and we just did a part on Iran,” he replies.
And all I can think is that I’m now living with someone who’s going to be an even more insufferable know-it-all than myself.
One thought on “Cheetahs never…”
Just wait ’til he’s 12.
