Caleb the Vegetarian

Me: Caleb, what do you want to be when you grow up?
Caleb: a vegetarian.
Me: Oh?
Caleb: Yes, I want to take care of animals. Are there possums?
Me: Yes, possums are real.
Caleb: Are there possums in Hawaii?
Me: No, but they are on the Mainland.
Caleb: How about Africa?
Me: I'm not sure. We can look it up. Do you want to be a zoo veterinarian?
Caleb: No, just a regular animal vegetarian. I will take care of baby animals and then sell them back to their mommies.
Me: Actually, it's called a veterinarian.
Caleb: Oh, a vegetinarian.

  2. By the way, Opossums are native to North America only, but the true "possum" is native to Australia. Opossums are North America's only marsupials.
