Kid Stuff: Measurements

I just really like the way my son has been describing measurements lately.  For instance, the pool has “a wide of one hundred,” and his goal is to persuade me to get the car up to “a fast of one hundred.”

Sooner or later I’m going to have to introduce the issue of units—one hundred what—but for now, I’m just enjoying the kid language.

Sometimes there’s whitewashing in fandom but none of these kids^ are white
