Lesson Learned: Don't Lie To Children
So my niece (5 years old) spent the night at my house yesterday and this morning she decided that she wanted strawberries. I eat a fruit bowl with oatmeal for breakfast damn near every morning and there were only like 6 strawberries left.. so i told her no. She says "Why not? Are they poison?" (she meant spoiled) I say yes and give her some grapes instead. She gets the grapes, sits infront of the tv, and starts coolin with Spongebob.. all good.
An hour later I go downstairs to go make my lil fruit bowl mix up.. and I dont see my strawberries in the fridge...
Me: Aira... where are my strawberries?
Niece: *Looks up at me with the 'aww shit' face on* huh?
Me: What did you do with my strawberries?
Niece: You said they were poison, so i threw them away..
Me: *Sigh* ...You threw away my strawberries?
Niece: I didnt throw them ALL away..
Me: *starts looking again*
Niece: I ate the good ones and threw away the rest..
I shall remember that moment the next time i think about lying to that little girl.
