    We learned about the brain today. It stores sooo much—all the things you see and hear—everything!

    It really is amazing.

    That reminds me. Would you please take out the garbage?

    Why would the brain remind you of taking out the garbage?

    Remember that movie you decided not to see last week?

    The kids at school said it’s really funny. But you and Dad didn’t feel good about it.

    I read about that movie. It has some bad stuff you don’t want stuck in your wonderful brain.

    So the bad stuff Dad was talking about is kind of like this garbage, but harder to get rid of.

    Smart girl.

    Speaking of smelly things, why was there a pile of stinky socks under your bed?
