Stuff gets in my eyes

The conversation with M, age 10, went a little like this:

M (holding up notebook): Guess what this is.

Amy: Your journal?

M: Not just any journal. It's a journal about stuff I get in my eyes.

Amy (realizing this kid has hit on a gold mine of awesome): What did you get in your eyes today?

M: Nothing today. But yesterday, it was toothpaste.

Later on ... M is scribbling in her journal. 

Amy: Did you get something in your eyes?!

M: No. This is a different journal.

Amy: Oh.
