(Disclaimer: I mean no disrespect for the sad and legitimate reasons for flying a flag at half-staff.)
Today when I was driving away from the school after picking Buddy up, I asked him why the flag at the school was at half-staff yesterday.
"I'm not sure. It was probably because yesterday was the day when people wake up and they think it's too early and are really tired."
This kid is a genius, I tell you.
