8 Years ago today, driving down Silver Lake Road, we heard this conversation. Barrett was 3 and Daniel was 5.

Barrett: I saw a train track.

Daniel: Did you see a train?

Barrett: No, I saw a train track.

Daniel: But did you see a train?

Barrett: No, I saw a TRAIN TRACK.

Daniel: No, A Train is what rides on a track.

Barrett: Yes, A train track is the thing that I saw.

Daniel: No, I don’t think you understand –

At this point I interrupted and explained to Daniel that Barrett probably did in fact understand.
