CHEESE AND CHEETAHS
Children say the funniest things part 87:
Years ago, my six year old niece let me in on a secret: Cheetahs never change their socks she told me.
Around 1987, while working in a castle gift shop, outside of which there was a wishing well, I heard a small boy and his grandmother talking:
Did you throw a penny in the wishing well?
What did you wish for?
To make a big splash.
And today, doing writing exercises with a group of twelve year olds, one girl, when asked to write a description / definition of Dairylea cheese wrote the following: 'The smell is like a moral priest praying on the side of caviar'.
She was a strange one.
