Don’t Peak Too Early

Danger Monkey, age 8: “Why is chili called chilly when it’s actually hot?”

Me: “The name comes from the chili peppers in the recipe.”

Little Miss Thing, age 5: “I knew that.”

Me: “The name Chili actually comes from chili con carne, which is Spanish and means ‘chilies with meat.'”

LMT: “I knew that.”

Me: “Carne means meat in Spanish, which came from Latin, which is also why meat eaters are called… carnivores.”

DM: “Cool.”

LMT: “I already knew that.”

DM: “You don’t know everything.”

LMT: “Yes I do. I’m in KINDERGARTEN.”
