Kids Continue to Say the Darnedest Things About Geography
I have a feeling that a lot of kids will say the darnedest things before I leave on my trip next week. It happened again...
ME: Next week, we're taking the jazz band to a festival in Vermont. KID: Vermont--that's in Canada, right? ME: Close-- it's right next to it. And that's funny; the other day, a kid thought it was in New Hampshire. KID: Well, I was closer. ME: Actually, you're equally close; Vermont borders New Hampshire on the east and Canada on the north. KID: I'm still closer.
(I did have to concede that the part of Vermont where we'll be is slightly closer to Canada than New Hampshire.)
