Washing Hands in the Clouds

One day (and this was not recently, but I wanted to write about this) my daughter and I were in the car. Looking out the window she asked me 'What's that?' She was a little more than 2 years old back then I believe, and after a little effort on my part I realized she was pointing to the clouds.

'Those are clouds', I said and was happy to teach her a new word. But to my amazement, staring at the clouds she said, 'I wanna wash my hands in them.'

Clouds do look like something we could wash hands in, don't they? I wonder who learned something new.
