The Correct Answer Is Sun.

Rubes was working on a HighLights workbook last night and there was a section of questions. Among them was, "Name three things that are yellow." She starts listing off all kinds of yellow items she can see right there in the kitchen. So I decided to see if she could name things not visible but from her head. Thus the following conversation.

Me: "Rubes, can you think of anything yellow that's outside?"

Rubes: "Pee."

Me: "I'm sorry, what did you say?" (Hubby is trying not to laugh.)

Rubes: "Pee. You know mom, don't eat the yellow snow."

Me: "Ah, yes. Can you think of anything else?"

Rubes: Looks puzzled, "Umm."

Hubby: Giggling, "How about the sun?"

So then I decide to call Grandma and Grandpa and give them a chuckle. And thus the following conversation.

Me: "Hi Dad, I just asked Rubes to name something yellow outside..."

Grandpa: Interrupting me, "Dog pee."

Me: "Umm, yea, she said pee. How?"

Grandpa: Giggling, "I'm a farm boy and it's winter. There isn't much sun but a whole lot of dog pee in the snow."

Ah, Yes...I'm looking forward to spring when the answer will be "SUN" again.
