Last week we had a lengthy discussion (read: argument) about why he couldn't choose the U.S. even though it wasn't on the "don't do" list. He was quite determined. Over the next few days I made some suggestions, including Australia and Canada, where I know a few people and could get information via email. He finally chose China and today we started researching it. After I put him in bed tonight, I asked him this question:
Me: How did you choose China?
The Boy [with a big smile]: I chose it because it sounds like angina. Chest pain.
[We both laughed.]
Me: How do you know what angina is?
The Boy: iCarly.
I guess I should consider myself lucky that it's ANGINA that he's rhyming it with.
I'm sure he's going to get an A.
