Scene: We're driving in our town past one of the several colleges.
Ben: What's that building?
Me: It's a college.
Ben: When do you go to college?
Me: After high school you can go to college.
Me: You can study a specific subject and then get a job.
Ben: Will I be big?
Ben: And then I won't need you anymore!
Me: ... Yes. [Heart breaking.]
Ben: Then I can make my own breakfast.
Ben: They won't have a microwave at college so I'll have Cheerio's.
Me: They have microwaves at college.
Ben: Oh. Then I'll have oatmeal.
