Kids Say the Darnedest Things About Math and Money

ME: So let's think of the time signature as a fraction for a moment; the bottom number of 4/4 time would then mean "one fourth." What's another way to say one fourth?
KID: A quarter.
ME: And what does a quarter make you think about in terms of music?
KID: Money.
ME: As in, you open up your case when you play, and people toss quarters in there?
KID: That's right.
