Kids say the ... well, you know the rest

Highlights from my 7-year-old nephew's visit to New York:

"You could have just wrapped them up and mailed them to us." His response to my giving him his Christmas presents in July.

"This is going to be awesome, isn't it?" When he got out of the car to go see the Statue of Liberty.

"The best thing about it is that I've got my whole family here. It wouldn't be as cool if it was just my friends."

"Hey, there's children there!" Yelled out in the middle of the dark theater during the documentary about Ellis Island.

"Do you live in one of those things that a lot of people live in?" About my living in an apartment building.

"I'm about as tired as a bear who just fell asleep after getting hit by a man with a bow and arrow."

"I wanna rock and roll all night, and party everyday!" His rendition of his favorite song.

"Cheers to a great day!" While holding up water glass and toasting, after the waiter had served all our drinks at Tony's.

"I gave him the moon!" His present to his father on his 30th birthday. As in he pulled his pants down.

"Honk! Honk! Honk! Honk!" Yelling at traffic.

"Are you a teenager?" Asking me about my age. And making my day.
