what not to say

the scene: Sam is playing with Mr. Potato Head

Sam: Mama, I can't find all his pieces
me: did you look in your playroom? they could be anywhere.
Sam: can you help me?
me: oh, I just remembered. look in his butt, that's where all the goodies go.

if you have a Mr. Potato Head at home, be prepared for this question and please, answer it differently!

Oh, that's too funny. Thank goodness they have no idea about that "other" level of meaning to the things we say!
