Yesterday we had dinner at a local restaurant. It was very cold and snowy. There was a frozen puddle in front of the door of the establishment that I asked her to watch out for. Walking home, I reminded her of the ice by the door and later had to warn her not to step in a large puddle that had formed in the parking lot.
C: "Dad, if it's cold enough to freeze water outside, why is the puddle by the door frozen and the puddle in the parking lot not frozen?"
Dad: "That's a really good question. I'm not sure I know the answer."
C: "I knew you were going to say that."
Dad: "Oh really. How did you know that?"
C: "Because that's what you always say when I ask a REALLY good question."
