Quip of the Day
My 7th grade son had been studying Columbus in social studies class when he asked me if I thought Columbus was a "good guy" or a "bad guy?" I said he was probably a good guy, because we have a day off of school. To which he replied: "I think he was a bad guy, because he double-crossed the Atlantic!"
He then told me how the class was going to put Columbus on trial. Their teacher would be the judge, and each student would get to play a part in the "trial."
A few days later, my son asked me, out of the blue, what a bay leaf was. "It's the leaf that your Nana puts in pot roast," I replied.
He looked confused, so I asked what was wrong. "Well, Mom, I don't know how I can play a bay leaf in this trial."
It took all my will power to answer with a straight face, "It's bailiff, not bay leaf!"
