When you’re really young, you haven’t had time to learn not to take everything so literally. It’s easy to completely misunderstand things belonging to the grown-up world – this is one such story.
Two little boys go to the grocery store. One is nine years old and the other one is five years old. The nine year old grabs a box of tampons from the shelf and carries it to the register for checkout.
The cashier asks, “Oh, these must be for your mom, huh?”
The nine-year-old replies, “Nope, not for my mom.”
The cashier responds, “Well, they must be for your sister then?”
The nine year old quickly replies, “Nope, not for my sister either.”
The cashier has now become curious. “Oh. Not for your mom and not for your sister? Who are they for?”
The nine year old says, “They’re for my little brother. He’s five years old.”
The cashier is surprised. “Your five year old little brother? Are you sure he need tampons?”
The nine year old explains: “Well yeah, they say on TV if you wear one of these, you can swim or ride a bike, and my little brother can’t do either of them!”
