My Kid Just Said… #22

Posted by , under "MY KID JUST SAID..."

“You taste like a clean pretzel.”
(April 2013, 3.5 years old)


This was after my son licked his mama’s face…

First, what? Second, what does a dirty pretzel taste like? Third, how does my son know the difference?

So many stories to get to the bottom of…

    That’s too funny. Better find out how he knows what a dirty pretzels tastes like cuz, Yeah…eeeww. ::>_<::

    I’m gonna guess that he meant a ‘clean’ pretzel, as in your wife didn’t taste salty? But that’s hysterical!

    My 15 year old daughter was trying to tell me I clapped loudly last week, but she said “crap” instead of “clap” – hilarity ensued.

    As someone who once licked pretzels, there is a technique to it. Much like a sommelier with wine, Finn is simply showing his refined palette. A clean pretzel is the one you’ve already licked the grains of salt from. There is no such thing as a dirty pretzel, there are, however many other varieties of pretzel than just the wet, or clean, pretzel. For example the salty, or dry, pretzel – its usual hallmark is the fact that it is still inside the bag. There are also smashed, or toddlered, pretzels, which were my daughters particular favorite, as well as the macerated, or goopy, pretzels that many babies prefer.
