While traveling from church to lunch today, I was relating a stoy to dh about a friend:
"So they got in a police car from A to B, new police car B to C, and so on until they got home."
DS age 8: "How many letters did they get to?"
Rolling laughter from the rest of us, a little bit of laughter from ds.
DD age 14: "I don't think he gets it, but he's still laughing."
More laughter from all. Silence.
DS, 8: "I don't get it."
Rolling laughter again. DH starts to explain that A and B are not specific places.
DS, 8: "Ok, but what letter did they get to?"
We explained again, in more length this time. Dh: "Do you understand?"
Me: "Are you sure? Do you really understand?"
DS: "How could I not understand with all that explanation?"
