Nathan

I like corn, but I don’t like bugs.
I like apple juice, but I don’t like bugs.
I like mashed potatoes, but I don’t like a bug drink.
I like to play with my duckie, but I don’t like to play with BUGS!
I like to wear my Daniel Tiger pajamas, but I don’t like to wear bugs.
I like my cow tattoo from Sonic, but I don’t like a bug tattoo.
I like cows, but I don’t like bug cows.

– Nathan, Age 3
