Trenton is fascinated with signs. He is always asking me what they say and mean.
So it was of no surprise to me when he asked what this sign meant when we went to the doctor’s office.
I pointed to the picture on the sign, and told him that the symbol meant “No Smoking.”
“That’s smart. If the building was smoking it would be on fire.”
“Yes, if the building was smoking it would be on fire, but that’s not what the sign means. It’s telling people not to smoke.”
“Oh, cause they don’t want people to be on fire, right?”
And no, I didn’t just leave it at that. I did take the time to explain what cigarettes are, that some people smoke them, and that they aren’t good for our bodies and can make us sick.
