Sebastian is my nine-year old and he says some of the funniest things–we have no idea where he gets his material since his mother and I are rather boring, serious people.
When passing idle time either standing in line, driving, waiting to be served in a restaurant, I often quiz the kids on various topics. I find it far more tolerable than the incessant phone use. On one such occasion, I was quizzing them on historical events.
Me: “What year was the Declaration of Independence signed?”
Seba (after considerable contemplation): “Year Zero?”
