my ex brought our daughter over today. she's almost six.

me: "hiya honey."
honey: "hi, daddy! I ate a packing peanut!"
mom, answering my best rendition of the people's eyebrow:"[her puppy] dopey got into them, and she was scared he'd get sick. so i told her they're made out of cornstarch now."
me: "she knows what cornstarch is?"
mom: "she knows it's edible. i explained."
me: "uh-huh. so how was it, honey?"
honey: "it was gross! it was like a cheeto with the cheese licked off."
me: "reckon you won't be eating any more of them, huh?"
honey (giggling): "i brought some in my pocket."
