A few years ago, the family was on summer vacation in Northern Wisconsin. It had been very dry and hot, not typical weather for the region. Heading back to the cabin one afternoon, my youngest son announced, "My trout is dry."
After bursting out in laughter, I told him, "That's a bad thing for a fish, better put it in some water."
My son did not find any humor in this, and to this day, still adamantly denies that he said "trout" instead of "throat," despite the fact that the other three members of his family insist he did.
