The Great Pretender
Henry is pretty much pretending one thing or another every minute of the day lately. Around here exhanges like this are very common:
Henry: I tried Ramen noodles once at my school.
Me: Did you like them?
Henry: Not so much. They were too salty.
Me: Yes, they are very salty.
Henry: And my teacher added more salt.
Henry does not go to school and has never seen, much less tried, Ramen noodles.
And another day, after we explained to him what cigarettes are:
Henry: Do you want to hear about my first day of school?
Me: Sure, tell me about it.
Henry: My teacher was smokin' semaphores.
Me: Do you mean cigarettes? That's not good.
Me: Cigarette smoke is not good for people to breathe, kids especially.
Henry: It's okay. She was smokin' semaphores in the bathroom.
