Comments from the Peanut Gallery

The following conversation occurred this evening at a local ice cream shop.

Atticus: Mom, what kind of nuts are in your ice cream?

Sarah: Pecans.

Atticus: Pecwhat?

Sarah: Peh-cahns

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.
