"Why don't you go out in the street?" I ask my three-year old son.

"Because you'll end up like Georgie," he starts.

"What happened to Georgie?" I inquire.

"The clown ripped off Georgie's arm and pulled him into the sewer," he replies.

I follow up with, "do you like balloons?"

He responds by soiling himself and shaking uncontrollably.

I laugh and say, "and also, you might get hit by a car!"
