Don’t Ever Tell Your Children Anything

There’s a nice salad station at the new California Academy of Sciences cafeteria, and we were standing there surrounded by dozens as the chef put beets on top of my wife’s salad.

My wife said (as you do, in such situations), “Look, Boo: Beets!”

Boo replied loudly (as she does, ditto), “PINK POOP!”

Sometimes the line between “cute” and “disgusting” is surprisingly thin.
