GIDEON: Daddy, don’t get mad, but I failed an assignment today at school.

ME: What did you fail?

GIDEON: A word association test.

ME: How do you fail a word association test?

GIDEON: Well, the teacher said, “Winter,” and I said “Dead Pool.”

ME: Dead Pool? Why did you say, “Dead Pool.”?

GIDEON: Because when she said “Winter,” I thought of Winter Soldier, which made me think of Captain America, which made me think of The Avengers, Which made me think of the X-Men, and the letter X made me think of the alphabet, which made me think of alphabet soup, which made me think of chicken soup, which made me think of turkey soup, which made me think of Thanksgiving, which made made me think of Christmas, which made me think of Christmas Tree, which made think of Susie because she loves Christmas Trees, which made me think of Ronnie who sits next to her, which made me think of Dead Pool because he loves Dead Pool like me!

Too bad the teacher didn’t ask Gideon why he said Dead Pool. I would have loved to have seen her reaction to that train of thought!
