Girl Genius??

Emmy was in the shoe aisle at WalMart watching two teenage AA boys trying on new sneakers. They were jabbering in another language that we did not understand.

Emmy looked at us and asked "Why they not talk English?"
Colleen asked "How do you know they are not speaking English?"
Emmy "Because I don't know what they say."

At this point, Emmy has drawn the attention of the two boys and they start asking a few questions about her. Then one boy turns to Emmy and asks her a question in whatever language it was he spoke (still don't know what it was). Emmy looks up, smiles, and says "I am three years old."

The boy looked stunned, turned to us and said "You have one really smart little girl here."
