Countdown to destruction

Friends of ours own a company which sells watches to help children learn to potty train. These watches count down between bathroom visits. Quite a while ago, she sent me a sample of their watch. It was placed in a drawer and just recently unearthed.

Today, Nate was messing with it.
Nate (looking at watch): Mom, there are 23 minutes until the end of the world.
Mom: Wow, we should prepare.
Nate: Well, it is the END of the world

Right, nothing to prepare.
Nate: Only 10 minutes until the end of the world

Nate: Mom! Only a few more seconds until the end of the world! 10, 9, 8, 7, 6, 5, 4, 3, 2. . .
(long pause)
Nate: hmm. I guess it's not the end of the world.

The kid just doesn't change, does he? Still so darned cute, even with a wild crazy hairdo. He's learning early not to believe the "end of the world" predictions.
