An Earnest Statement - made by a four year old

As Maddie and I walked along a boardwalk over the hot springs in Yellowstone National Park, I began explaining to her why the earth and water were so colorful there. My explanation, of course, contained some scientific terms like, microorganism and acidic. And as she was asking me some clarifying questions about the afore mentioned, she slipped in this statement in a very serious voice.

"Leslie, I didn't know you knowed so much."

I had to stop and laugh a bit at that priceless moment. I must normally come off quite ignorant in Maddie's company. I'll have to work on that.
