Grammatically Ambivalent

I love the way kids are ambivalent. They can happily tell you one thing in one breath, then the oppositie in the next.

So I’m asking Liam about his Afterschool afternoon, and what he had to eat.

“Cheese sandwich. But it had cucumbers on it. So I asked the dinner lady to take it off.”

What did she say?

“Nothing. She said ‘Just eat it'”.

And:

Liam: “There were other kids there in uniforms like mine.”

Me: “So they were in red sweaters?”

“Yes. They were green”…
