11/11/07 conversation between grand and joe

JOE: Where's Margaret (Grand's cat)
GRAND: Joe, Margaret died so we won't be able to see her anymore. If we want to see her we'll have to look at pictures.
JOE: Where is she?
GRAND: She's buried under the porch.
JOE: Can I see a picture of her?
GRAND: There's one on the fridge.
JOE: No, one of her after she died.
GRAND: I can understand why you would want to see that, but I didn't take a picture after she died.
JOE: Are you sad?
GRAND: Yeah, I am sad about it.
JOE: Well... It's a good thing I'm here... I'll give you a hug... Because I'm a hero.
GRAND: Thanks, you are a hero.
JOE: I feel sad too.
GRAND: When you feel sad I can give you a hug too to make you feel better.
JOE: That's okay, I can take care of myself.

misunderstandings of common household objects

Joe has a camping safety whistle that has a compass on the top. This morning he put the whistle in his mouth and then took it out and looked at the compass an said,
"My temperature says I need to whistle." And then blew on the whistle.

He also thinks that the scale tells you how old you are. He steps on and looks down and says,
"Two and a half."

We haven't felt the need to correct him.
