First Week Funny

PlainsOfAbraham2007This 1797 engraving is based on a sketch made by Hervey Smyth, General Wolfe’s aide-de-camp during the siege of Quebec. A view of the taking of Quebec, 13th September 1759.

As we head into the last day of our official first week of school for this year, I thought I’d share a humorous exchange that occurred today:

DELIGHTFUL: Hey, Mom!  Did you know that General Montcalm died the day after the battle of the Plains of Abraham?

ME: I read that.  Did you know that I have actually been to the Plains of Abraham?

(Delightful’s eyes get really big)

DELIGHTFUL: (in a serious and concerned tone of voice) Was it still smoking?
