Two Worlds

This morning, I was in the shower and Miguel came into go to the bathroom. This was our first conversation of the day...word for word...

Me: Good morning.
Miguel: Is the Titanic with all the people that died real?
Me: Yes, that really happened.
Miguel: They shoulda built it out of bricks.
Me: Then it would have sunk because bricks are heavy.
Miguel: Then there shouldn't be winter in that world.
Me: Well...
Miguel: There are really two worlds, ya know...Disney World and the whole big world. Can I flush now? Don't forget to brush your teeth!

And with that, he was gone.

That's very funny.

This could be an incredibly nuanced strategy for getting a trip to Disney World, and if so, I applaud the complexity of his manipulative subtlety -- knowing you would never take him if he just asked, he figured out a way to turn it into a teaching situation.
