Do you have to pay to park?

I have 2 sections of 1st graders daily...1 group from 8:30 - 10am and the 2nd from 10:30 - noon. These kids are really fun and they love to learn. But some of the questions I get are so random I just don't know what to say. For example:

Ryan: Do you have to pay to park everywhere?

Mr. Dorn: What do you mean?

Ryan: You know, when you drive your car. Do you have to pay to park everywhere?

Mr. Dorn: Well some places you do and some you don't. At school the teachers and parents can park for free, but if you were in a very busy area in Milwaukee, you'd probably have to pay to park.

Ryan: Ok, I want to be a teacher then. I don't want to waste my money on parking.

So funny. It made me smile today. Also please note that Ryan has a speech impediment so all of his R's sound like W's, for example:

Ryan: Do you have to pay to pawk evewywhayuh?

Mr. Dorn: What do you mean?

Ryan: You know, when you dwive yo cah. Do you have to pay to pawk evewywhayuh?

Mr. Dorn: Well some places you do and some you don't. At school the teachers and parents can park for free, but if you were in a very busy area in Milwaukee, you'd probably have to pay to park somewhere.

Ryan: Ok, I want to be a teacho then. I don't want to waste my money on pawking.

As you can see, this way is much cuter. I wanted to make sure you had the full effect.

(And to clarify, I have not seen Batman yet nor will I ever see it if I keep being made fun of about it. And Star Wars Rules. So do Jack's Natural Rising Pizzas.
