Nick took a break from swimming, riding his big wheel, squirting trees with a spray bottle and refusing to eat pizza in order to answer some more of your questions. Let’s dive right in, shall we?
STEVE W from Pittsburgh asks: “Hey, Nick. My stomach is really touchy. What foods should I avoid?”
Nick: Well don’t eat cherries outside.
Me: Why not?
Nick: Only eat cherries inside.
Me: Okay. Why?
Nick: Because cherries inside are washed. Cherries outside can’t be washed. Unless it rains on them. But then you just have to wait.
Me: And what happens if you eat the cherries from outside?
Nick: You get sick, daddy. *Cough*
Me: And how –
Nick: COUGH COUGH COUGH
Me: And how do you –
Nick: COUGH COUGH COUGH COUGH!
Me: You okay?
Nick: Yes. I just ‘tending.
Me: Okay. So what do you do if you get sick?
Nick: Well first you think “I gonna kill that cough!” But then sometimes another cough comes.
Me: So what do you do?
Nick: You just sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep, sleep.
Laura B from Spring, TX asks “I need Nick’s thoughts on several topics, but the first is what should a person do if a cat pees on the floor?”
Me: Do you seriously expect me to think you find that gross? Your three favorite things are trucks, cats and pee.
Nick: Why the cat pee on the floor?
Me: I don’t know. But what you should do if a cat pees on the floor?
Nick: Get OxiClean.*
Me: I’m sorry, what?
Me: How do you know OxiClean?
Nick: From the commercial. You get the vacuum and you clean it with OxiClean and the cat says MEOW! MEOW! MEOW!
