Carson: “I have to tell you something. Jellyfish don’t have brains, but the only jellyfish that has eyes is the Australian Box Jelly.”
Mom: “The only one that has eyes?”
Carson: “It has twenty-four eyes.”
Mom: “That’s interesting. But how can it have eyes without a brain? When you see your eyes send a message to your brain, which is how you see. Where do the Australian Box Jelly eyes send their message?
Carson: “I guess they just send it to the top of its head.”
Mom: “The ants go marching eight by eight, the little one stops to…”
Carson: “Take a date.”
Mom: “Take a date? What does that mean?”
Carson: “You know, take his wife on a date.”
Carson: “I know how to litter, but I’m not going to litter, because it’s bad and if you do it too much, you go to jail. And then you die.”
Carson: “The germs are having a germ party, and normally they get together and feast on a dead tiger. But if it’s a special day, they get to feast on a dead deer.”
Note from Paige: Last summer we took a huge road trip to Utah and Colorado for a couple family reunions. Carson got his own hand-me-down digital point-and-shoot camera on the car ride up, and he was obsessed with taking of pictures. Here’s some of the ones from his camera. (The ones of him and Annelise were taken by other people.)
