My kids are really into pretending lately. One of Ian’s favorite games includes traveling from planet to planet. (One couch is Mars and the other one tends to be Earth.)
They were playing this game when Claudia started screaming.
Me: Honey, what is going on?
Claudia: Keisha doesn’t want to be on Mars! (Keisha is Claudia’s baby doll.)
Me: Okay. Keisha can come back to Earth.
Claudia: Keisha doesn’t want to be on Earth, she doesn’t want to be on Mars. SHE DOESN’T WANT TO BE ON ANY PLANET!
Me: Claudia. We live on Earth.
Claudia: NO WE DON’T! WE LIVE ON VIRGINIA!
Me: Yeah, but honey, Virginia is on Earth.
Claudia: No it isn’t! AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHEEEEEEAAAA!
My degree is in Political Science not astronomy, but Virginia is on Earth, right?
