For Thanksgiving (CDN) my wife puts out a glass vase full of small decorative white pumpkins on the dining room table. My six year old tears into the room and skids to a halt staring at them.
HIM: What is that?
HER: It's a decoration.
HIM: No, it's not. If you set it on fire then THAT would be a real decoration.
He tears off again making robot and machine gun sounds. He has a point.
