Bleeding Goblet

I was telling some 6 and 7 year olds about knights, princesses, princes and kings. In the book there was this word 'goblet'.

Little 6 year oldYi Wern: What is gob..gobbet?

Me: A goblet is something ancient people put their drinks in.

Little 7 year old Nicholas: Huh? Goblet arr? YERR!!! (and shows me his hand) See? Goblet errr goblet errr~

I was trying to figure out why did he mention goblet and show me his palm then only I realised that he meant GOT-BLOOD! GOT-BLOOD!

I was dumbfound. Even more when he showed me a sentence "Why is it 'sitting AT the table' and not sitting ON the chair"?

Little Nicholas isn't the top student in class but for him to think of those made me speechless.
Cute little rascals =)
