I couldn't help it...I busted out laughing. I know he's never seen Willy Wonka, so he doesn't know about Violet putting her gum behind her ear to save it for later. I was immediately transported back into time when I was probably 7 or 8 years old. I HAD seen Violet, and thought she was pretty smart. I remember playing outside with my sister and our best friend (Meghan), when I decided to save my gum for later. Unfortunately, I had really long hair, which the gum behind my ear found almost instantly. I have memories of lots peanut butter in my hair and eventually just having to cut a big chunk of my hair off.
Kids are the same everywhere, whether they've seen Willy Wonka or not!
