They will say anything and repeat anything. The daughter of one of our friends once came out with a curse word at a religious meeting. The mother was horrified and embarrassed and demanded, "Where did you hear such a thing?" The reply of the child: "I heard you say it, Mother." I'm glad you enjoyed this little humor write. Elton
