Teacup of the week: gopher it

My four-year-old grandson was outside playing one afternoon. I went out to check on him and saw he had a spade. “What are you doing?” I asked. “I’m looking for gophers and their rubbish,” he replied.

He had dug more than 30 holes in the lawn! Later that night I asked him, “Who told you to do it?” Then he came out with the reply, “My brain told me to.”
