This is true and not made up.
While standing in line at the grocery store, my son and I were talking about our day. He was telling me about two different conversations he had at school today.
Conversation # 1:
A friend in his class said, “Can’t wait till Thanksgiving. We are going to have squirrel.”
My son’s response: Why would you eat a rodent for Thanksgiving?
Conversation # 2: (different person)
My son: How did you cut your finger?”
Friend’s response: “Oh I was cleaning a squirrel”
My son’s response: (In his head) “Where the heck am I? “
I wonder what kind of wine you serve with squirrel.
