When we were driving home the other day we were listening to some kids music- and this was the conversation. First up- Turkey in the Straw.
Ollie: Mom, how did the turkey get into the straw?
Me: Well Ollie it's not a drinking straw it's a different kind of straw
Ollie: But mom, how did he get in the straw? Isn't he too big?
Me: Ollie it's a type of grain they feed animals
Me: I'll show you a picture when we get home
Ollie: Why don't you have a picture now?
This continued for another several minutes until he was satisfied I'd show him a picture until.....
Jimmy Crack Corn
Ollie: Mom what is Jimmy crack corn?
Me: Ask Nana
And that was the end of the conversation! Whew! Because I REALLY had no idea how to explain Jimmy Crack Corn. However the next time he saw Nana he made sure to ask her about Jimmy Crack Corn.
