Earlier tonight, I had the following conversation with my 9-year-old:
Me: I’m going to start teaching you about cleaning your skin in a few years. Teenagers get these things called pimples; they’re boo-boos that you get on your face.
Him: Well, Nonna has a boo-boo on her foot!
Me: Really? What’d she do to it?
Him: it’s black.
Me: Her foot is black?!?
Me: Then what’s black??
Him: I don’t know.
I’ll have to try some other time.
