That Old Rachel 8

When Rachel was about 2, we started giving her some Sesame Street vitamins. She really only liked the Bert and Ernie ones. They came in four sort-of fruit flavors. One morning I gave her an orange Ernie and she chewed it up rather thoughtfully and then said, "Mom, Ernie tastes likes cherry."

"Does he?" I said, "I would have thought it tasted like orange."

"It does." said Rachel, in a surprised tone. "It does taste like orange...or maybe like yellow."
