My daughter has been studying World War 1 and World War 2 in school. She had a big test on the material, so she asked me to quiz her - at 10:30 at night.
I looked at her study sheet. "Okay, what countries made up the Triple Entente?"
She thought about that. "Russia, France, and ... GB."
I scrunched up my eyebrows. "What's GB?"
Okay. (Would that be George H. or George W.?)
"What event marked the end of World War 2?"
"The bombing of Nagasaki and Shampoo," my daughter answered.
"Yeah. Because I always mess up how to say Hiroshima. I call it Shimohira, which sounds like "shampoo."
So, ladies and gentlemen, you have now learned that George Bush is a country, and that World War 2 ended with the explosion of a huge bottle of shampoo.
LOL! I don't think I want to live in George Bush country. At least with a shampoo explosion, it would be a clean end to a war. ;)ReplyDelete
And the loss of life would've been minimal!Delete
Yikes! Shampoo! I hope there was a rinse afterward. :)ReplyDelete
I think rain did the job. ;)Delete
Yes, did we retaliate with rinse?ReplyDelete
See above. ;)Delete
Damn, shampoo is more deadly than I thought.ReplyDelete
I wonder if it was baby shampoo. ;)Delete
Sherry your family are priceless, what a story.lolReplyDelete
We are all a little crazy over here!Delete
Tell her she has to learn to pronounce names and words correctly and it doesn't matter if they're not English. Your story is cute, and I know I seem harsh (I am), but she'll thank you later.ReplyDelete
Don't worry, blog mom, I made sure she could say the name correctly. She could. I think she was getting slap-happy from being overtired!Delete
you should make her memorize the name of Hiroshima.... it's extremely important not something to take lightly.ReplyDelete
You are absolutely right. She does know the correct name. For our family especially, it is very important to us that our kids know all about World War 2. We lost many family members in the Holocaust.Delete
Learn something new every dayReplyDelete
You never know what brilliant flashes of information you'll garner from this page!Delete
Whatever it takes to remember!ReplyDelete
GB. Let's hope she doesn't write, George Bush on the test!Delete
Ha! Poor shampoo bottle never stood a chance...ReplyDelete
Poor bottle. Poor people who had to be doused in shampoo!Delete
LOL. You made me laugh out loud with that bottle of shampoo! :)ReplyDelete
If only it really was a bottle of shampoo, and not a city!Delete
That is so funny. I'll bet you're right. She was just over tired, but he knew all the right names. Your blogs are so much fun, even when you're talking about something serious.ReplyDelete
Sherry, I learn something new everyday! :-)ReplyDelete
She must have been overtired. I know I get a little silly when I'm overtired. Hope she did well on her test.ReplyDelete
