Things Kids Say

My Pet Sister

While tutoring Marina, an uncommonly bright 8-year-old with a shockingly good English level and a wicked sense of humor…

Me: Tell me about your pet.

Marina: I don’t have a pet.

Me: Invent. For example: I have a tiger. It’s black and orange. It’s got four legs.

Marina: Okay. I have a human.

Me: You can’t have a human as a pet.

Marina: Shhh! It is the color of skin. It’s got four legs.

Me: Humans don’t have four legs.

Marina: Guess who it is!

Me: You can’t have a human as a pet.

Marina: *points to her 4-year-old little sister crawling on the ground* He he!

Me: Your sister is not a pet!
