All writers are from Australia

So I was talking with one of the kids this morning, a young girl of seven years old. The conversation went something like this:

 

Her: It’s ‘Meet the author’ Day at school.

Me: That’s cool. Maybe you can meet me there sometime on ‘Meet the author day.’ Did you know that I’m a writer?

Her: You’re not from Australia.

Me: Well, writers come from other countries than just Australia. I’ve been to Australia. Does that count?

Her: No. Not really.

 

Kids. As Art Linkletter used to say ‘They say the darndest things!’
