I'll take State Capitals for $1000 please, Alex.

So my five-year old is very strange at times and so completely random. This morning we are watching the Sesame Street movie " Follow that Bird" At one point he looks at me and says " Hey mom, I have a question"

"Okay, shoot, Sammy" And I am thinking it will be a question about the movie. Silly me.

"What is the capital of South Dakota?"

"I'm sorry. What, Sammy?"

"Mom, what is the capital of South Dakota. Come on. This isn't hard"

"Ummm...I dunno...Bismark?"

"WRONG ANSWER!! Pierre! Man, you got it WRONG!"

There you go. A lesson in geography from a five year old. I am deeply shamed. I will never be on Jeopardy now. And Alex is such a Canadian hunk.

There will now be a return to writing about my NYC adventures. Thank you!
