Enlightening Conversations

Conversation between yours truly and an intelligent girl kid all of 3.5 years old (gk):

gk to me: I'll teach you how to make peanut butter (her favourite). take a peanut.....no...make a grinder, then....take a peanut, put it in the grinder, plug it in, charge it, it grinds the peanut automatically. now, apply it on the bread

me: make a grinder??? :)

gk to me: umm, ok, buy a grinder

gk's mom: hey, gk, we don't have to buy a grinder...we are all likely to have a grinder

gk to me: ok, if you have a grinder, take a peanut and......(repeats whole process)

me: (new line of thought) only one peanut?

gk: ok, take two peanuts

me: (going back to old line of thought because of lack of ideas) hey, what if i have to buy a grinder? how do i buy it?

gk: make some money and buy it

me: how do i make money? what is the best way to make money? (intelligent question, eh?)

gk: umm....well....uh....ok, get a piggy bank. best way to make money

me along with everyone else in the room were rolling on the floor and dangerously close to destroying some fragile items.
