First of all, I have a big favor to ask of you. My blog friend, Janie Junebug, has 239 followers. She would really like 240. So, if you aren't following Janie, please hop over and follow. She is a very nice lady, and I'm sure you'll like her. Plus she's a very good editor!
Okay. Now for the story:
"Mama?" my ten-year-old son asked. "Do you know how tall the biggest tsunami is?"
"No, Bubba. I have no idea."
I nodded. "That's pretty tall."
"Do you know where it was?"
I shook my head.
"Lituya Bay, Alaska." He grinned. "I bet you don't know when it happened, do you?"
"No, Bubba. I have no idea when it happened."
"July 9, 1958."
"Bubba," I said. "That's really impressive that you know all these facts. How do you remember them?"
"It's easy, Mama. I have nothing else in my head!"
