One last "X"-ism for the week

He's really been on a roll the last few days!

Yesterday, while we were discussing science-related careers, we talked about cartographers (map-makers). X. raised his hand and asked, "Do you have to live in China to be a cartographer?"

As I always do when X. asks such a question, I quickly replayed the last few moments in my mind, wondering what I may have said that could have led to such a language- or cultural-based misunderstanding/miscommmunication. I came up with nothing.

"No, X.," I finally answered. "Why do you ask?"

"Well, whenever you look at the label for something, it always say, 'Made in China,' 'Made in China,' 'Made in China,' " he said. "So I just thought that maps were made there too."

Bad news, ladies. The internet stalker is back. It's time to get a man's perspective on events in your lives.

Off I go to read all that I've missed....

That's too cute and I gotta say, I love how this kid's mind works. Seems like a pretty smart kid.
