Practical Mom's Dictionary, Installment #8

Just had to share another one:

Perspective: My son was looking at some coins he had in a bag and came across a one dollar coin from 1977. Here is the conversation that ensued:

J: "Look at this Eisenhower coin, Mom. What is it made out of?"

Me: "I have no idea what it is made out of."

J: "Wow. It's really old, look, it's from 1977!"

Me: "Yeah, really old, I was 6-years-old." The sarcasm doesn't carry over in my typing, but, trust me, it was dripping in my voice.

J: "That's really old, then!"

Thanks a lot, son, thanks a lot.
