Act Your Age, Not Your Shoe Size

Two of my favorite fictional precocious children.

BOY: I'm three.
ME: I know. But I always think you're older. You look at me with old-man eyes.


BOY: How old are you?
ME: Guess.
BOY: Twenty-eight?
ME: Nope.
BOY: Twenty-nine? Twenty-ten? Twenty-eleven?
ME: Wrong direction.
BOY: Nineteen?
GIRL: One? Two? Three...?

GIRL eventually got it right. Smart cookie.
