Hubby's turn

Last night at dinner middle son was practicing his states.  They have to memorize them  in alphabetical order and be able to label a US map correctly.

Mawmaw says to DH:  Well, I have a question.


Mawmaw:  We still own Japan, right?

(I grabbed my glass and raised it up to hide my face.  SO glad it's his turn this time!)

DH:  No, we don't own Japan, Mawmaw.

Mawmaw:  When did we sell it?

DH:  We never owned it.

Mawmaw:  But we whooped them in the war, right?  So we owned Japan.  That's the way it works.  You lose the war, you lose your country.

DH:  No, that's not the way it works.

Mawmaw:  Well, it was when the war ended.  They must have changed the rules sometime recently.

She was a young adult when WWII ended.  I have no idea where she got that idea or why she never realized it was wrong.  I can tell you that I don't think she really believes DH, though!  lol

I did mean you. :) I didn't know her name was Judy, too, so I learned something from you.

Omigosh, you two should be blessed for the wonderful home you're providing for MawMaw! I know sometimes it's simply not possible to keep elderly relatives at home, but the way you're doing it is the way it used to be so often . . . and I wonder if we all weren't better off then.
