A recent conversation between my mother and me, as best I can remember:
Mom: Alex is convinced that the water tower at the end of the road is full of grape juice.
Me: What? No, he's not. He knows it's a water tower.
Mom: He says you told him it has grape juice in it.
Me: No, I didn't. Did I? I wouldn't do that.
Mom: He was adamant that his mother told him there was grape juice in the water tower.
Me: Okay, well, he might have said "Mommy, what's in the water tower?" and I might have said "Grape juice, Alex, what do you think? It's called a WATER tower."
As a side note, the water/grape juice tower conversation between Alex and I happened SO long ago, I'm shocked he even remembered it.
As another side note, it's a real possibility that I'm warping these children.
