Where's the ice?

Sometimes children (and adults) speak before thinking.  This is generally not a good idea, and sometimes dangerous.  However, at other times, it's just plain hilarious.  I've been asked all sorts of questions during my career as Mom and Wife.  The best one ever though, has got to be, "Where's the ice?"  Why, it's under the bed, dear.  Or perhaps I left it on the couch?  Maybe in the linen closet?  I'm not sure, really.  Isn't there only ONE place we keep the ice?  It may be confusing because we don't call it an icebox anymore.  They say kids don't understand sarcasm until the third grade or so, but I say we just aren't teaching them young enough.
