The Field Trip

Me: Henry, how was your field trip to see the Wizard of Oz today?

Henry: Good. There was a princess who wanted to get back home to Candace. And let me tell you who the good guys were: a scarecrow who could talk but didn't have a brain, a tan man made out of tan, and a lion who needed curtains.

Me: Was there a Wizard behind the curtain at the end?

Henry: NO! There was no wizard.

Me: What about flying monkeys? Were they scary?

Henry: There were no monkeys! What do you think it was, "Monkey of Oz?"

I had no further questions.
