Today I was talking with LMC about why it is good to learn French, and where people speak French around the world. I told her that she would need to speak French if she wanted to go to Canada.
“Can we just not go to Gettysburg?” she asked.
“Gettysburg isn’t in Canada!” I said.
“No. It’s in America. It’s where there was a really decisive battle in the American Civil War, and where Abraham Lincoln delivered an important speech called the Gettysburg address.”
“Abraham Lincoln. Wasn’t he the guy on a coin?”
“The guy on a coin…”
“Yeah, and if you’re under a bridge and it falls down on you, it’s good luck.”
“Dude, if you’re under a bridge and it falls on you, it’s not good luck.”
“No, I mean if the coin falls on you…”
“The coin with Abraham Lincoln on it.”
