The following conversation occurred this evening at a local ice cream shop.
Atticus: Mom, what kind of nuts are in your ice cream?
Atticus, looking disappointed: Oh, I thought they were squirrel nuts!
Hatfield: Squirrel nuts are too big for ice cream.
Atticus: No! Squirrels carry their nuts in their mouths.
[We all ponder that thought for a moment]
Atticus: Squirrel nuts are green. You don't want green squirrel nuts in your ice cream.
I certainly don't, my boy, I certainly don't.
