Charlie, the Horse?

Here was my conversation today with Abby:

Abby: My leg hurts.

(Teachers--how many times a day do you hear "My ___ hurts"?)

Me: Honey, you're just going to have to tell your mom about it tonight.

Abby: I did this morning. And you know what? I don't get this. She told me it's a horse! And guess what else? She named it Charlie!!

Me: Oh, I see. You have a charlie horse in your leg.

Abby: [looks at me like I'm as crazy as she thinks her mother is] No! It's just a knot or something.

How Creative.

Here is the quote of the day:

"It was SO hot in gym class today! Which reminds me--when I was little, my dad used to put his Coke cans under my armpits to thaw them."

Oh dear.
