Mouths of babes

Overheard in a local first-grade classroom:

Reading tutor: "This book is called 'My Home Is ...' and it's about where animals live."

Student: "The bear says, 'My home is ... a den.' "

Tutor: "Right."

Student: "The snake says, 'My home is ... a hole.' "

Tutor: "Good."

Student: "The bat says, 'My home is ... a cave.' "

Tutor: "Yes. Do bats always live in caves, do you think?"

Student: "No! Sometimes they live in Reno!"
... Inexplicable ... that's ... what you are ...

  1. OK, that was funny. I believe there's a protected habitat for bats in Reno.
