Kids Say the Darndest

Since February, I’ve been teaching circus skills to kids on the road. Sometimes they say funny things. Here are a few of my recent favorite conversations.

Me (gesturing to a trunk): “Please sit down on that chair.”
Kid: “That’s not a chair.”
The kid sits down on the trunk.

Me: “Well, are you sitting on it?”
Kid: “Yes.”
Me: “And what do you sit on?”
Kid: “Snowcones!”

Kid (hugging me): “I love you as tall as anyone.”

Me: “What’s your name?”
Kid: “Czareena.”
Me: “Do you have a sister in circus also?”
Kid: “Yes.”
Me: “What’s her name?”
Kid: “Czarissa.”
Me: “Are you Russian princesses?”
Kid: “Yes.”
Me: “Where are you from?”
Kid: “Puerto Rico.”
Me: “So you’re real Puerto Ricans and fake Russian princesses?”
Kid: “Yes, my parents are really from there.”
Me: “Where in Puerto Rico are you from?”
Kid: “Spain!”

Grown-up (not me): “What’s your favorite animal?”
Kid: “Leprechauns!”
