Peanuts, Plums and Oranges

When two people who enjoy studying science get married and have a baby, the baby grows into a 9 year-old who also loves science and likes to have conversations like these.

Me:  Seriously, Emma? You have to pee AGAIN? Does it hurt when you pee?

Emma:  Noooo....why?

Me: I'm wondering if you have a bladder infection or something.

Emma: No, I just drank two glasses of water in a couple of minutes.

Me: Most people can hold it for at least a couple of hours at a time.

Emma: I can hold it for 10 minutes at a time.

Me: Congratulations.

Emma: That's why Trina calls me "peanut bladder."

Me: It's true.  It's an accurate name.

Emma:  Aaaaaactually, a child's bladder is about the size of a plum and can stretch to the size of an orange.

Me: .........

Emma:  Mine is usually stretched to the orange size.

Me:  You read too much.
