Actual conversation

"Let's put the bacon back in the freezer; we don't want it to go bad."

"What's 'go bad'?"

"It means we don't want it to get rotten."

"What's rotten?"

"Rotten is like when food ... goes ... bad."

"What's 'go bad,' Apa?"

"It's like when food sits out, and so it gets all moldy and gross."

"I wanna see gross, Apa! What's gross?"

At this point I actually started thinking through things in the fridge that probably had mold on them, before realizing that it probably wasn't a good idea to get him interested at all in exploring disgusting food.
