After a swim in the pool, my son asked, 'why does it hurt when water gets into the nose?' Daddy the scientist, who thought his son finally asked him his favorite biology subject, proudly answered, 'Cause we are not fish, we breath with nose. No gills to allow breathing under the water. That's why it hurts'.
Then my son asked again, 'What about crocodiles? They have nose like us, how come they can live under water....?' My husband and I looked at each other for 5 seconds, then burst into laughter.
