Treasure on the Highest Shelf

My sister and niece are in town vistting. Last night (well after her bedtime) my niece comes into the living room...

"Look! I got gum!"

"You've got gum?" I ask.

"She's got gum," my sister comfirms as she follows her into the room.

"Ah yes! I recognize that gum now. I thought I put it on a high shelf," I say.

"Not high enough. We do that at home too, so she's learned all the good stuff is on the high shelves," my sister tells me as my niece proudly pops the gum in her mouth and starts chomping away.

My niece has already learned an important lesson: In the land of the little people the treasure is always on the highest shelf.
