M: Mommy. My gum is gone.
Mommy: WHERE is it gone to?
M: In a dark place.
Mommy: WHAT dark place? This is very important.
M: You can't see it - it's in a dark place with lots of other things.
Oi. I am too big to be crawling around in dark places with lots of other things. I guess we'll find it next time we move.
