Talking To My Three Year Old Daughter In An Airport

why do we have to use plastic knives and forks?

Because a long time ago,
some bad men used metal knives
to hurt some people on a plane.

could you see the blood? could you see bones?
sometimes if you cut someone
so bad you can see their skeleton

Yes there was blood
and now we are not allowed metal knives inside airports.

did they go to jail

Who?

the people who cut the other people

Yes.

what were their names

I don’t remember.

were their names one, two, three,
four, five, six, seven, eight,
nine, ten, eleven, twelve?

Yes, those were their names.

– Iain S. Thomas
