Oh yeah - Pres Day
Yes, Presiden't Day would have went unnoticed at our house this year if it wasn't for the following conversation that just took place on the way home from school.
Abigail: "Mom, Abraham Lincoln was a liar."
Mom: (not totally paying attention) "Really, why?"
Abigail: no response
Mom: (realizing what Abigail just said and wondering what in the world they are teaching at public school) "Did you say that Abraham Lincoln was a liar? I've never heard that."
Abigail: "No, mom, I said, he was a lawyer."
Mom: Cracking up. "Do you know why that was so funny ?"
Abigail: SMILING HUGE because she got it..."Yeah mom, his name is Honest Abe."
So, I guess that public schools aren't failing us, even though Abigail reminds me now that my hearing continues to fail me.
I guess the lawyer/liar thing is a secondary part of the joke.
