My skin looks like cauliflower

Hey, he said it, not me. Matthew, that is. You see Matthew and his classmates have been studying diversity this week and making self portraits to highlight the kids' similarities--and differences. 

Today, they read a book, "The Colors of Us", which talked about skin color, race, and other differences we have. After reading the book, Matthew's teacher asked each child to think of something their skin, eyes and hair looks like. Here were Matthew's answers:

My skin is like the color of: cauliflower
My eyes are the color of: blueberries
My hair is short and white.

Everytime with the "white" hair. That slays me for some reason. Love the cauliflower reference, too. I mean, I know the kids is pasty, but cauliflower?
