Tonight, on the way into town for gymnastics….
Kid: I wonder when there will be a new country?
Me: (laughing) I don’t know. Maybe it will just be a surprise?
Husband: (puzzled) What do you mean? Like, where?
Kid: I mean, like, next to Missouri.
Husband: Well, Arkansas is kind of its own country.
Me: (laughing very hard)
Husband: Wait. Pretend I didn’t say that. It would definitely be wrong on your geography test.
