My 8 Year Old Brother on Online Work

My brother was talking about what TV character I’m like and he was talking about “Drake and Josh” (TV show on Nickelodeon… I enjoy it). Anyway, he said I was Drake, but then I said… well, Josh has a job, so I’m like Josh, too. And then he says (as best as I can remember):

Is there such a thing as online work? NO! For years, I hear all about your internet work. They’re lies!

And he’s serious. LOL. :)

I'd say prove him wrong, but minds of little ones are usually too stubborn to accept when they're wrong, no offense of course but I know I was like that. :D

Yeah, I wasn't offended or anything. He's a little boy - my little brother at that - it's hilarious. :)
