Geography Lesson

The globe sits prominently downstairs, ready for a quick reference whenever a country comes up in conversation. On this day the kids are spinning the globe and stopping it indiscriminately with an index finger.

“Jamaica!” Says, TheMonk. “It’s tiny, Daddy.”

“Yes.” I reply. “And they go around saying, ‘Jamaican me crazy, man!’”

TheMonk looks at me with a wary smile. “You’re making me crazy?” he says slowly enough to where I’m not sure if it’s a question or a statement.

The globe gets spun again and Swee’Pea stops it with her tiny finger. “Turkey?!” she shrieks as she obviously finds it hilarious that there is a country named after the bird she just ate for Thanksgiving dinner.

“Yes.” I reply. “Now, can you tell where the country called ‘Chicken’ is?” I ask.

Immediately, both Swee’Pea and TheMonk begin closely investigating the globe.

Being a dad sure is fun.

    Maybe ask them to find Luxembourg… if you’re lucky it is about the size of a pinprick on your globe (in case you’re wondering where it is: it is squeezed between Belgium, France & Germany all located in Europe).

    Cheers, Eva
