Avery's lesson

My sister Erin was driving the other day with her 5-year-old daughter, Avery. As they were chatting, Avery gave my sister this little lesson . . .

Avery: Mommy, Emma doesn't like Red Robin!
Erin: She doesn't?
Avery: No! That is SO weird.
Erin: It IS.
Avery: She's like un-American.
Erin: Oh??
Avery: Yeah.
Erin: Well, if she's un-American, what is she?
Avery: [thinking this through] She's like . . . a Mexico.
Erin: "A Mexico?"
Avery: Yeah.
Erin: Well, what if someone from Mexico doesn't like Red Robin? What would THEY be?
Avery: I guess they would be . . . un-Amexico . . .

Well, I don't like Red Robin so I guess I'm "a Mexico." And that's alright by me because it gets me THAT much closer to Gustavo . . .
