Well, they both start with 'C'

"My friend got caught by a cuckoo bird."

OK. Not something you hear every day. Not even from my 6-year-old son.

"Uh...what?" was my eloquent response.

"Yeah!" he answered excitedly. "Right in his sock. A cuckoo bird!"

And....that's when it dawned on me. Anyone who has spent time in the grassy prairies of the Midwest this time of year knows what I mean.

I cannot make this stuff up. God bless 6-year-olds and their inspirational moments.
