Another funny moment...

...during school this morning...

Maggie, while taking a test for History (The Story of the World): "Mommy, why did they name a city Ur?"

Me: "Well, I don't know off the top of my head. We'll have to look that up later."

Silence. She moves on to the next question. She answers several more before she pipes back up. Obviously, she's taken some time to consider the name Ur.

Maggie: "I bet I know why they named it Ur. I bet they kept thinking Babylon would attack, so the people kept walking around frustrated, grumbling 'Ur, ur, ur.' "

Yes, I am not kidding folks. That's absolutely as good as it gets!
