Semantics...

Big Z is officially fired from her job as big sister. Earlier she noticed that there are sprinklers in our apartment and asked me what they were for. After I explained it, she went about her business. Last night, Little Z asked her sister what they were. Instead of saying they are sprinklers and they put out fire if one is in the house, she said: That's the thing that spits out fire. Guess who can't sleep now, and is afraid her room is going to burn down in the middle of the night?!

The mistake is funny; the fear is not.

Holy CRAP. Ben became terrified of the smoke detectors in our house because he thought they were going to start shooting smoke out of them.
