Our World with Kids' Eyes
It is quite amazing how kids see our daily world, how they come up with "good solutions" to problems of us grownups. It is a big fun to read what they think. I have collected these explanations, descriptions etc. from a couple of funny and entertaining emails which I received over the time. As it would be too sad to just have them sit around on my local hard disk I thought it a good idea to help you guys over the day with a good laughter or two. Now lean back and just enjoy!
WHAT IS THE PROPER AGE TO GET MARRIED?
Eighty-four, because at that age, you don't have to work anymore, and you can spend all your time loving each other in your bedroom.
---- Judy, 8 years old
Once I'm done with kindergarten, I'm going to find me a wife.
---- Tom, 5 years old
WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?
You should never kiss a girl unless you have enough bucks to buy her a big ring and her own VCR, cause she'll want to have videos of the wedding.
---- Jim, 10 years old
Never kiss in front of other people. It's a big embarrassing thing if anybody sees you. But if nobody sees you, I might be willing to try it with a handsome boy, but just for a few hours.
---- Kally, 9 years old
IS IT BETTER TO BE SINGLE OR MARRIED?
It gives me a headache to think about that stuff. I'm just a kid. I don't need that kind of trouble.
---- Kenny, 7 years old
WHY DOES LOVE HAPPEN BETWEEN TWO PEOPLE?
No one is sure why it happens, but I heard it has something to do with how you smell. That's why perfume and deodorant are so popular.
---- Jan, 9 years old
I think you're supposed to get shot with an arrow or something, but the rest of it isn't supposed to be so painful.
---- Harlen, 8 years old
WHAT IS FALLING IN LOVE LIKE?
Like an avalanche where you have to run for your life.
---- Roger, 9 years old
If falling in love is anything like learning how to spell, I don't want to do it. It takes too long.
---- Leo, 7 years old
WHAT EFFECT DO GOOD LOOKS HAVE ON LOVE?
If you want to be loved by somebody who isn't already in your family, it doesn't hurt to be beautiful.
---- Jeanne, 8 years old
It isn't always just how you look. Look at me, I'm handsome like anything, and I haven't got anybody to marry me yet.
---- Gary, 7 years old
Beauty is skin deep. But how rich you are can last a long time.
---- Christine, 9 years old
WHY DO LOVERS HOLD HANDS?
They want to make sure their rings don't fall off, because they paid good money for them.
---- Dave, 8 years old
WHAT DO YOU THINK OF LOVE?
I'm in favor of love as long as it doesn't happen when 'The Simpsons' is on television.
---- Anita, 6 years old
WHAT QUALITIES ARE NECESSARY IN A GOOD MATE?
One of you should know how to write a check. Because even if you have tons of love, there is still going to be a lot of bills.
---- Ava, 8 years old
HOW DO YOU MAKE SOMEONE FALL IN LOVE WITH YOU?
Don't do things like have smelly, green sneakers. You might get attention, but attention ain't the same thing as love.
---- Alonzo, 9 years old
One way is to take the girl out to eat. Make sure it's something she likes to eat. French fries usually work for me.
---- Bart, 9 years old
HOW CAN YOU TELL IF TWO ADULTS EATING DINNER AT A RESTAURANT ARE IN LOVE?
Just see if the man picks up the check. That's how you can tell if he's in love.
---- John, 9 years old
WHAT ARE MOST PEOPLE THINKING WHEN THEY SAY "I LOVE YOU"?
The person is thinking, 'Yeah, I really do love him. But I hope he showers at least once a day.'
---- Michelle, 9 years old
WHEN IS IT OKAY TO KISS SOMEONE?
It's never okay to kiss a boy. They always slobber all over you. That's why I stopped doing it.
---- Jean, 10 years old
HOW DO YOU MAKE LOVE LAST?
Spend most of your time loving instead of going to work.
---- Tom, 7 years old
Be a good kisser. It might make your wife forget that you never take out the trash.
---- Randy, 8 years old
