Out of the mouths of kids

Kids say the funniest things, I tell ya.  And boy are they a lot smarter than people give them credit for.

I walk into clinic the other day and into a patients room.  The 6 year old little boy was at the clinic for an asthma check-up.  "This will be easy," I think to myself. I love asthma!  So I walk in the room, and this is how our conversation goes...

Me: "Hi, how are you?  Whats going on?  Why are you here?"

little boy: "My asthma."

Me: "ok, lets see... how are your allergies doing?  are you allergic to anything?"

little boys mom: "No, he is not allergic to anything."

little boy: "YES I AM!"

Me: "Well what are you allergic to?"

little boy: "Weed Smoke!"

uh, oh, busted!  So I walk into a room for what should be an easy asthma check-up and walk out of a room crushed because I have to call DHS, bummer!
