My daughter likes sweets, and I like giving her sweets. We recently bought a container of sprinkles (or “jimmies” if you’re from State College, PA) to enjoy with our ice cream. She of course had some. My daughter was enjoying her sprinkles, and I asked her how they tasted. She answered, “Blue.” Her sprinkles tasted blue. Now, not really an answer that makes sense on a casual level, her answer was clearly relevant. She’s a genius who thinks out of the box. I’ve decided that once a day I’ll answer a question that someone asks me with something completely surreal.
