We were getting ready to attend a Veteran's Day assembly on Friday so I initiated a discussion about Veteran's Day and why we were celebrating it next Tuesday. I asked, "What is a Veteran?" Several hands went up and when I called on a little boy he very confidently stated, "Well, it's someone who, you know, works with animals"....the dad helping me that day just about peed his pants he was laughing so hard! I calmly explained that yes, the two words sound similar but someone who works with animals is called a "veterinarian" and what I wanted to know was what did they think a "Veteran" was.....I finally had to tell them, two others were conviinced it was someone who works with dogs/cats/etc........gotta love Kindergarten.
