Last Halloween, my daughter (seven at the time) was going through her candy deciding which pieces to keep or give away. She came across a package of Smarties and studied the wrapper. Like most kids her age, she is filled with questions about everything. She popped a few in her mouth and then asked the following question.
CJ: Momma, why do they call this candy “Smarties?”
Me: [kidding] Because they make you smart.
CJ: [swallows the Smarties she was chewing and smirks]: Well then how come I didn’t know that?
