Frosty and weed?

Daily life in the classroom....

Me (Holding up a picture book in First Grade): So here's Frosty's button nose, and his eyes made out of coal.
Tyler*: Why's he got weed?
Me: Oh, that's not a weed. That's his corn cob pipe.
Tyler*: Well, I've always heard it called weed.

Uh, right. Never know what you're gonna hear, do you?

*Tyler, obviously, is not his real name.
