And you’re the Adult?

The other day walking home from school Tember pulled a crab apple type looking apple from a tree. 
He looked at me and asked if he could eat it.
Aghast I said no.
He wanted to know why not?
Me: Tember do you pick things up off the ground and eat them?
Tember: Yep
Me: What? (Head swivels to stare at him)
Tember: I pick up poop. And oh once it was a dead rat. That one was pretty tasty.
Me: Okay I am going to admit that was a stupid question.
