Coffee Hurts

In the week leading up to Canada Day, I was eating lunch with a friend and her 6-year-old granddaughter. The 6-year old was pretty animated as she talked about school and friends and teachers.

As I sipped my coffee, I asked her, "What special day is coming soon on July 1st?" 

She said "Canada Day". She's a smart kid. So, I asked.... 

"What does Canada Day mean?" 

Waiting for her reply with something about the flag, confederation etc. She

"Canada Day is when the Prime Minister steps out of the Parliament
Building , and if he sees his shadow we have one more year of unemployment." ....... 

You know, - it hurts when hot coffee spurts out your nose.
