Go tell Mommy

We ate at a friend's house Saturday. Their 5-year-old son had recently studied Johnny Appleseed at school. Tradition has it that Johnny Appleseed wore a tin pot upon his head, though tradition is a bit fuzzy on why this was so. Pots being a fairly simple shape, their son had fashioned a construction paper pot to wear as a hat.

Dad helped son put the hat on and told him in that enthusiastic talking-to-children voice, "Go tell Mommy you're a pothead!"

Mommy overheard this instruction and hollered from the next room, "Son, do NOT repeat that!"
