Scene: family room watching Olympic opening ceremonies, parade of nations….
Announcer: and in the crowd we have George Bush…
My Daughter, age 6: was he President once?
Me: (trying not to laiugh) actually he’s our current President.
My Son,age 8: what’s current mean?
Me: (wondering what they teach kids in school these days) That means ‘right now’.
My Son, age 8: Then he must get in for free!
Me: (laughing) you’re probably right.
Oh, I haven’t seen your kids in years (OK, I’ve never seen the girl child), but I’m glad that have a fabulous sense of humor 🙂
