This evening, Zoe and I were reading a book about different animals. We got to a page with a picture of water buffalo, and she asked if they were nice. “Yes,” I say, “remember that other story we read where they talked about them being gentle animals?”
“But the water buffalo will break my glasses,” says Zoe.
Zoe has never before mentioned any concern about anything breaking her glasses. Intrigued, I ask her for more details.
“How would they break your glasses?” I ask.
“They are big animals, they could bonk them. Or step on them. Or even knock them off your face. They would break my glasses,” she explains with every confidence.
So, there you have it, and I’m pretty certain you read it here first. Water buffalo may pose a hazard to your child’s glasses. You have been warned.
