A woman was taking care of a neighbor's little girl one morning. She arrived in time for breakfast and sat down at the table. "Mommy always makes me hot muffins for breakfast," the girl said.

"No thank you," the girl said when they were brought to her.
The surprised woman replied, "I thought you said your mother always has muffins for breakfast?"
"She does, but I don't eat them."
