Literalmindedness

Me, reading aloud from "Now We Are Six":

No one can tell me,
   Nobody knows,
Where the wind comes from,
   Where the wind goes.
Her, interrupting:
It comes from the South Pole!

Now you know.

I love this age. They have all the answers and just cut right to the chase. Red even talks back to song lyrics. She sets them straight.
