Conversations with a six-year-old

Helen, while reading her Dr. Seuss dictionary this morning: “Dad, is Dr. Seuss dead?”

Me: “Yes, kiddo. He’s been dead for many years.”

Helen: “Did he get shot?”

Me, laughing: “No, kiddo – he just got old and died. Why did you think Dr. Seuss got shot?”

Helen: “I don’t know. I’m weird.”
