Today's quote from a toddler

Jessica (our 3-year-old) went on a preschool field trip to the Carnegie Museum yesterday. Her mommy went with her. The tour guide brought the class through the animal exhibit, a big room full of furry, scary animals stuffed and positioned into imposing stances. The tour guide talked to the class about the polar bear, asking, "What's the biggest feature on the polar bear's face? The nose, right! Bears have a really great sense of smell."

My wife bent down and said, "Just like you, Jessica. You have a really good sense of smell, don't you?"

To which Jessica responded loudly, "mommy did you fart?"

She asked for that one.

Followup: My wife informs me that, in fact, she did NOT fart. Must have been the bear.
