Boys will be boys

What are little boys made of?
What are little boys made of?
Snips and snails, and puppy dogs tails
That's what little boys are made of!

I quote this Mother Goose nursery rhyme because of a really cute thing that happened at the rehearsal dinner last night. We were at Jameson's By The Sea in Haleiwa. One of Iris' cousins, a five-year old boy (forgot his name), was looking at some of the things Iris' daughter Maile and her friend Madelyn were playing with - a plastic sword, those paper umbrellas that go with the tropical alcoholic drinks ... and the boy happened to notice the Chapstick that Maile likes to carry around. So the boy picked up the Chapstick, and asked us what it was. Iris' mum's friend, Elena replied, "It's like a lipstick." The boy, quite horrified, dropped the Chapstick as if it were something that would give him a bad disease, and ran off to find his father (Iris' mum's brother).

Once Elena realised what she said, she (as well as the rest of us) were ROTFL.

I guess you just had to be there to see the expression on the poor boy's face. It was, indeed, hilarious.
