A couple weeks ago, I was quizzing Dominic on things to see what I need to teach him. Here were a few of the questions and answers:
Q: What do you do when you call 911?
A: Tell them there's a fire and that I'm not the cause of it.
Q: Should you have electronics near water?
A: No, because water is a conductor.
Q: What should you do about strangers? (note: I'm thinking, be polite, but don't go anywhere with them. Don't get close enough for them to grab you, if you're alone. Never get in a car with anyone...)
A (at the top of his lungs) : Break the hold! Defend yourself! Fighting stance!
Q: How do you locate a stud?
A: What's a stud?
W: How do you pump gasoline?
A: I'm only 5, Mom.
Q: Do you know how to iron a shirt?
A: Of course not, I'm too little!
Q: How do you get a job?
A: Well, first, I have to get older.
It was great. Yes, I know some of the questions were ridiculous. It was worth hearing his responses. I just wish I had been recording it. I can't remember most of them. My favorite was his 911 answer, though. Of course, he would think of that. After all, he already has a record.
