Evie: "Why do we have a surfboard in our laundry room?"
Me: *squinting my eyes while I try to figure out the question*
"Oh. That's not a surfboard, honey. That's an ironing board."
Evie: *confused look* "What's that?"
Me: "You use an ironing board with an iron to get the wrinkles out of clothes."
Evie still looked confused, but at least she now knows that we don't have a surfboard in the laundry room.
