What We Learned in American History Today

September 18, 2007

Me: So, what do you think was more significant? Columbus landing in the New World or the astronauts landing on the moon? And why?

Her: Well, probably Columbus. Because otherwise we wouldn't all be over here in America and way too many people would be in Egypt.

Me: (after recuperating from us both laughing hysterically...Egypt??) So, can you think of other places in the United States or South American that are named for Columbus?

Her: Columbus, Indiana.... Columbus, Ohio.... Columbus, Virginia---no, Virginia is where all the communists were!

Go figure. (She meant: colonies.)

All in a day's work....
